State Sen. Charles Fuschillo Jr. (R-Merrick) and Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray will sponsor a program Tuesday in Roosevelt to provide free legal services to those in need.

The Mobile Legal Help Center will be at the northwest corner of Nassau Road and Mollineaux Street, across from the Roosevelt Post Office, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The mobile center is a partnership between the New York Legal Assistance Group and the New York State Office of Court Administration.

Attorneys will be available to provide free advice and legal counseling to residents on issues including Medicaid, Medicare, Medicaid-funded home care, Social Security, Social Security disability insurance, food stamps and public assistance.

Interested individuals should bring any documentation related to their situations that might be useful to the attorneys. Appointments are recommended, but walk-ins will be accepted.

For more information or to make an appointment, call Fuschillo’s office at 516-882-0630.
