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.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month is an opportunity to increase community awareness about the many issues survivors of family violence experience. During this month, many domestic violence programs will be organizing events, sharing information and providing opportunities for survivors to tell their stories. Including the voices of older survivors is crucial to our work and provides opportunities for all of us to learn from their experiences. Their stories can also help other survivors realize they are not alone and that healing is possible. In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, NCALL staff would like to say thank you to the many survivors who have shared their story and to the workers who provide services. All of you make a difference in your commitment to improving safety and enhancing the quality of life for older survivors.
