Workshops fill quickly and registration is required

The Camden County Board of Freeholders, the Department of Health and Human Services — Division of Senior & Disabled Services and the Surrogate’s Office announce free legal workshops for senior and disabled residents of Camden County.

Participants are required to be Camden County residents age 60 and older. Disabled citizens must be age 18 and older and residents of Camden County. Workshops are limited to 35 participants per session and pre-registration is required. Due to a high demand, it is suggested to call for an appointment as soon as possible.
