How we can help

Programs and services funded under the Older Americans Act (OAA) are designed to empower older adults to remain independent, healthy, and safe in their homes and communities for as long as possible. Legal assistance and elder rights programs, along with other programs and services, help to promote the independence, autonomy, and well-being of older persons.

The CSI Office on Aging works with Idaho Legal Aid Services, Inc. to provide advice, counseling, or representation by an attorney or by a paralegal under the supervision of an attorney. Legal assistance and representation are provided to persons sixty (60) years of age and older who are residents of the eight counties comprising the Area IV service area: Blaine, Camas, Cassia, Gooding, Jerome, Lincoln, Minidoka and Twin Falls. Contact us at 208-736-2122 for further information.
