Estate Planning Clinic with Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia

Help clients leave behind a legacy

Please join Philadelphia VIP and Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia for a two-part estate planning clinic for Philly homeowners. Training will be provided.

The event will be held at Samuel Gompers School on two dates:

  • Thursday, April 18 from 5:00–8:00 pm (training and client matching)
  • Thursday, June 6 from 5:00–8:00 pm (finalize and sign documents before a notary)
 

How it works

This page is for legal volunteers. If you need help making a will, please apply to VIP here.

Training and Client Matching (April 18): Following a one-hour training, you will be matched with a Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia partner family or neighbor. Using VIP’s case file and estate planning questionnaire, you and the client will begin making documents like a will, power of attorney, and advance directive.

In between the training and notarization day, you will have time to draft the documents using VIP’s estate planning resources. This time will also give clients a chance to consult with family members and be sure of their decisions.

Signing Day (June 6): Meet your client at the school to execute the estate planning documents in front of a notary and witnesses.

Volunteers should plan to commit to both meetings. Attorneys and other legal volunteers are welcome, but non-attorneys must bring a Pennsylvania attorney who will supervise their work.

RSVP below and contact Vijaya Singh with questions.
