The Project

Steven advocates on behalf of elderly clients regarding elder abuse, neglect and, exploitation issues.

Steven wants to help his community and give back. He wants to protect and advocate for the elderly and ensure they can enjoy the rights they deserve. He also wants to be a voice and a pillar for those whose voices can easily be unheard and help support them. This Fellowship program will provide Steven and his community with skills and resources that can be used to help advocate for the elderly population.

Fellowship Plans

Steven plans to research and conduct know-your-rights seminars to elderly clients at senior centers, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities to ensure that elderly residents and clients know and understand their rights. Specifically, the elderly in low-income communities who suffer from elder abuse and financial exploitation will have an advocate to defend and speak for them.
