The Education and Enforcement against Elder Financial Empowerment Project provides information, advocacy, referral and legal assistance to senior victims of financial abuse.

Financial exploitation, which is also known as material abuse, is the misuse of senior’s money or property by others. It includes deceiving a senior, diverting income, mismanaging funds and taking money, property and possessions against a senior’s will. Adult children, grandchildren, other relatives, caregivers, acquaintances or friends sometime commit these acts.
