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.
This year Congress lifted the cap on the Victim of Crime Act (VOCA) funding from $745 million to $2.361 billion. VOCA funds direct victim services and compensation. Since 2002, the Office on Violence Against Women’s Abuse in Later Life Program has funded communities to provide training for professionals on elder abuse; to create a coordinated community response and to enhance direct victim services for older adults.
Please join us on December 1 to hear more about how you can apply for funding from these two federal programs to support victim services for older adults in your community. Register today: http://bit.ly/1Y2jD7L.
