Where Faith and Safety Meet: Faith Communities Respond to Elder Abuse

General Material
Published Date
January, 2008

This online toolkit is designed to help domestic violence, sexual assault, and elder abuse service providers reach out to and collaborate with local faith leaders. Resources for service providers address how to get started with this work, including a Before You Start Checklist and a First Visit Checklist as well as an Outreach Guide. Then, as they begin to work with their faith leaders, service providers can provide faith communities information about elder abuse that is specific to a faith community’s concerns (with a bookmark, brochure, and a booklet about elder abuse and faith). The toolkit also includes a Partnership Guide for use by both service providers and faith communities.
