Legal Services to Be Topic of Focus Groups
Non-profit legal services Utah Legal Services and the Disability Law Center will be conducting two focus groups in Cache County to better understand how to serve this area. One focus group will target professionals who work with vulnerable populations, and the other focus group will be open to the public.
Utah Legal Services provides free legal services to people with limited incomes. They can help with divorce and custody, especially when domestic violence is involved. They help people get certain types of public benefits, assist with wills and estates and provide a host of other services for people who can't afford legal help.
The Disability Law Center assists individuals with disabilities with legal issues related to their disability.
On Oct. 29, professionals who serve vulnerable populations (e.g. those with limited incomes, senior citizens, individuals with disabilities) are invited to a focus group at Herms Inn. Lunch will be provided beginning at 11:45 a.m. The discussion will begin promptly at noon and will end at 1 p.m.
Also on Oct. 29, at 5:30 p.m., the public is invited to participate in a focus group at Options for Independence. Refreshments will be provided. All participants in that focus group will receive a $20 Walmart Gift Card.
To register for either focus group, contact Sheri Newton by phone at (435) 232-4269 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are not able to attend either group, but would still like to participate, you may complete an online survey for a chance to win a $50 VISA gift card. Complete the survey.
