The purpose of the Elder Abuse Prevention Project is to prevent and combat the abuse, neglect and exploitation of elders and dependent adults in Contra Costa County. To accomplish our mission, we seek to increase:

• Identification and resolution of elder financial abuse cases in Contra Costa County;
• Safety of elder victims of abuse as evidenced by an increase in victims receiving services and reporting safety;
• Understanding of the many forms of elder abuse by County service providers across disciplines, leading to better service coordination; and
• Community awareness and understanding of elder abuse.
