Seeking Applications for Video Project

The National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL) and Terra Nova Films  recently received funding from the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) (U.S. Department of Justice), for Lifting Up the Voices of Older Survivors Video Project to create educational videos on elder abuse for professionals and community members. NCALL, Terra Nova Films, and the OVC previously partnered on In Their Own Words: Domestic Abuse in Later Life (August 2010), a collection of video clips highlighting the voices of  five older survivors to help build the capacity of a range of professional groups who work with older victims of abuse.   


We Need Your Help.

We are looking for older survivors of abuse and/or family members if the person is no longer able to speak for him/herself who are willing to share their experiences. We are open to talking to any older survivor or family member to see if they are a fit for our project. We are especially interested stories from older survivors who:

  • Have received victim services, including older victims who have used support groups or transitional housing programs 
  • Are faith-affiliated, from tribal or rural communities, other communities of color 
  • Were victims of financial exploitation, including being abused by a guardian
  • Experienced neglect, stalking in later life, sexual abuse

If you know of an older survivor(s) or family members who might be interested in working with us, please complete the brief application. An electronic version may be completed online at: Alternatively, you can download a fillable application here and submit it to Rhonda Martinson at 


We will follow up to gather more information to assist us with our screening and approval process.  We will accept applications January – August, 2018.  If you have any questions about this project, feel free to contact Bonnie Brandl at or Jim Vanden Bosch at
