The Project

Work to stem elder abuse, including physical and emotional abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation. Assist victims of elder abuse.

Vulnerable elders across Iowa, particularly those with capacity issues, are often victimized by family, friends and caretakers without consequence. Even if elder victims or victims’ allies attempt to stem abuse once discovered, such efforts are often ineffective without the assistance of a lawyer. Too many elders living hand-to-mouth can’t afford a private attorney for the simplest legal tasks, let alone a rather involved and potentially acrimonious legal dispute.
