The Project

Aimee provided civil legal aid for elder abuse victims, educated elders on their rights and the help that’s available, and work collaboratively in the community to address elder abuse.

The project allows the host organization to expand its clientele base and help more people. There is especially a need for legal help where authorities are not willing to step in, such as in financial exploitation cases that fall under a certain dollar threshold.
