|SENIOR LEGAL HOTLINES
The Technical Support Project's mission is to serve non-profit programs that provide telephone legal advice at the initial call for service or soon thereafter. This definition includes many programs that do not call themselves "hotlines". Some hotlines stand alone - they are not part of a full legal services organization but provide only telephone brief advice (and) brief services. They refer clients needing extended services to other programs after rendering advice. Other hotlines perform the advice and intake functions for one or more full-service program that may have one or multiple full-service offices.
The Project definition of "legal hotline" does not include programs that perform only telephone intake screening but do not routinely provide legal advice as part of their telephone intake services.
