what we do

We always strive for elaborate results and do our best for our clients

Pension Counseling

The Mid-America Pension Rights Project assists retirees of any age or any income with retirement benefits. Individuals can receive basic advice about pension laws and rights, and our staff will investigate pension benefit denials and file appeals when necessary.  The pension rights of divorced persons, pension-related assistance for surviving spouses, and help finding lost pensions are included in our services.

The Mid-America Pension Rights Project is available Monday through Friday, 8 AM – 4 PM. 

Benefits Access Counseling

MiCAFE, or Michigan’s Coordinated Access to Food for the Elderly, helps individuals apply for benefits that meet their basic needs including utilities, food, housing, medical assistance, and prescription drugs. Application assistance is available in person and over the telephone, and is primarily for people age 60 and older. We also provide nutrition education, food preparation tips, and much more.

MiCAFE is available Monday through Friday, 9 AM – 3 PM.  

Technical Services

The Michigan Elder Justice Coordinating Council (MEJCC) was established to achieve a vision for a comprehensive, coordinated, innovative, and effective response to all forms of elder abuse. The MEJCC works with community partners from across Michigan to complete its mission of serving as a voice for elder abuse victims. 

The MEJCC provides support to promote elder justice including advocacy and legislation support, resources, research, communication and coordination efforts as well as direct services such as education, training and outreach. 

MEJCC is available Monday through Friday, 9 AM – 5 PM.  

Professional Services

Information and Counseling

Many older adults do not have a support network nearby.  Michigan’s Senior Connect Line seeks to help with that by providing a daily or weekly check-in.  Older adults can either call in to check in, or our trained staff will call them to check in.  This program seeks to break down barriers to obtaining healthcare, mental wellness, social and consumer services.
