Educating, Defending and Guarding the Elderly
May 7, 2020
The EAA networks among the various disciplines of its members, educates the public and professionals, and supports the Sheriff’s team in their investigation of elder abuse. We are a non-profit charitable corporation that is exempt from taxation under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions are welcome and are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
The Elder Abuse Alliance was founded in 1999 when volunteers from various disciplines in Genesee County, Michigan, including law enforcement, legal professionals, financial institutions, medical and social service providers, and other interested individuals, joined together to respond to this crisis in their community.
Reporting Elder Abuse
You should report if you suspect or have reasonable cause to believe that physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, or financial exploitation has occurred. A report does not have to be based on eyewitness accounts, incriminating statements, or definite proof of abuse. If you suspect elder abuse, you should make a report.
