Wills for Heroes

The YLS is an affiliate of the Wills for Heroes Foundation and proudly organizes volunteers for Wills for Heroes events.

Wills for Heroes is a free and easy service that provides Wills, Living Wills, Health Care and Financial Powers of Attorney to first responders and their spouses/partners.  The foundation was started in response to the tragic events of 9/11. Of the 403 first responders who died that day, most did not have a will in place. First responders risk their lives each day to make our communities safer. This program provides free wills and other estate planning documents to our local heroes in about one hour using a program supplied free-of-charge by LexisNexis.
