For special needs advocates, the journey to developing a tailored strategy to support and safeguard the most vulnerable in society is marked with many uphill and emotional challenges. It takes time, information and resources to navigate the many complex private and statewide services to ensure eligibility and attention. At times, all issues seem to be urgent when dealing with a disability.

On October 8, the Walnut Street Center and attorney Kimberly L. Kelly will offer a free supportive workshop that will arm long-term special needs advocates with invaluable and effective tools to facilitate and encourage their work. The program will give an overview of general advocacy, plus medical and financial advocacy such as guardianship, conservatorship and trusts. Everyone will leave with a 44-page handbook that addresses how to express views and concerns; accessing information and services; rights and responsibilities; and exploring choices and options. This program is not to be missed.

Kimberly L. Kelly of the Law Office of Kimberly L. Kelly LLP has been practicing law for more than 16 years, concentrating in Guardianships, Conservatorships, Probate/Estate Administration, Estate Planning, Special Needs Planning, Trust Administration, MassHealth Planning, and more. She launched her law practice in 2010 and in 2016 established a partnership with Attorney Baglio and Kelaher to better serve her clients.
