National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life

Seventy-seven million baby boomers are aging and people 85 and older, the fastest growing segment of the population, are disproportionately women. These demographic trends have significant implications for victimization, safety, suffering, health, and well-being of tens of millions of older Americans.

Through advocacy and education, the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL) works everyday to improve victim safety, increase abuser accountability, expand coordinated community response, and ultimately, put an end to abuse in later life.

As a private, non-profit organization, NCALL relies on federal funding and the generosity of others to carry out our work. To pledge your support to NCALL, please visit the Donation page today.

NEW Resources

Elder Justice Website

The United States Department of Justice Elder Justice Website, launched September 8, 2014, will serve as a resource for elder abuse prosecutors, researchers and practitioners, and most importantly, for victims of elder abuse and their families.  This website will also serve as a forum for law enforcement and elder justice policy communities to share information and enhance public awareness about elder abuse. To learn more, please visit: http://www.justice.gov/elderjustice/.

The Elder Justice Roadmap 

Funded by The Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services, The Elder Justice Roadmap Project is a national roadmap to guide programs and services to address elder justice issues – preventing elder abuse, providing services for victims of elder abuse in all its forms, and building systems for prosecution of abuse, sexual assault and financial exploitation. The Report is now online and available for download at: http://ncea.acl.gov/Library/Gov_Report/index.aspx.
