Seeking Executive Director
“As one of its funders, the Council on Aging values Pro Seniors as a community partner whose attorneys and staff fill a fundamental role in protecting the rights of Ohio’s seniors. Too often decisions are made for rather than with seniors and not necessarily in their best interests, so having Pro Seniors standing at their side is more important more than ever before. Pro Seniors is a solid collaborator, always responsive and very attentive to the trends in the field of aging services. It is a great non-profit law firm advocating for what’s best for seniors”. – Ken Wilson, Vice President of Program Operations, Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio
