Elder Abuse Prevention
FSW’s Elder Abuse and Victim Assistance Program works with Westchester County adults, ages 50 and over who have been victims of elder abuse (physical, emotional, sexual, financial or neglect) or are at risk of abuse but are not in immediate crisis. Victims of other crimes are also eligible to receive referral-based services.
The program provides family interventions, peer support, information and referrals. FSW collaborates with both abuse survivors and the community to be proactive in fostering safety through home and offsite visits, case management and referrals, supportive counseling, safety planning, Victim Assistance Application help when needed, outreach and training to community members, and a support group for Mount Vernon elder abuse survivors.
