Challenge

Every year, one in ten older Americans are victims of physical, sexual, psychological, financial abuse and/or neglect. The team at Cedar Village manages & funds every aspect of the counseling & care delivered so people age 65 & better suffering from abuse or neglect are able to heal safely at no cost to themselves in a safe, secure, and confidential location.

Solution

By providing an elderly abuse victim an emergency place to stay, the abuse cycle can be broken and the victim will have an opportunity to restore their dignity and find a permanent living situation that is safe,

Long-Term Impact

In addition to giving individuals the chance to escape from abusive situations, Cedar Village aspires to initiate a vital culture change for our community making it no longer acceptable to "look the other way" when it comes to elder abuse.
