  Elder Abuse Advocacy & Outreach  
     
 

 
  This program reflects an on-going and ambitious commitment to provide direct and indirect services to elder and developmentally disabled adult victims of crime in Tulare County. The assigned victim advocate is responsible for ensuring that victims receive the appropriate resources and referral services necessary to aid in the healing process in the aftermath of crime. Additionally, the advocate is responsible for making the community aware of issues surrounding elder abuse, through presentations to various service groups, financial institutions, banks, retirement communities, law enforcement and the general public. Since its inception, the project has provided services to hundreds of elderly and developmentally disabled adult victims of crime. Services include crisis intervention, emergency assistance, resource referral and counseling, orientation to the criminal justice system, court support, case status and disposition, and assistance with restitution.
