Most APS and domestic violence programs don’t have the resources to provide the appropriate, comprehensive emergency services needed for elders’ safety, medical, mental, emotional and social needs.  This workshop will examine the elder abuse shelter movement and how the shelter model uniquely leverages existing community resources to fill the critical services gap for vulnerable victims.  We will explore a variety of unique program models designed to fill this critical gap with emphasis given on how a faith-based coalition came together to provide emergency shelter, awareness education, crisis care management, counseling and legal support.
