VEPT Resources

The VEPT program is intent on providing the resources needed for both older adults and professionals in regards to elder abuse. See below for a comprehensive list of both local and national resources:

Resources for Older Adults and Other Concerned Persons

New York State Office of Victim Services (NYS OVS)

NYS OVS helps crime victims and their family members and friends cope with victimization from a crime directly and indirectly in many ways, educates them on victim rights, and can connect victims to other service providers who may also be able to assist them.

NYS OVS provides a safety net for crime victims who have no other way to pay for costs resulting from being the victim of a crime – including but not limited to medical bills, counseling expenses, burial and funeral costs, and lost wages. Family members also may be eligible for help.

New York State Office of Victim Services: Elder Mistreatment Focused Victim Assistance Program

A non-emergency phone and email-based service for concerned persons (of the non-abusing family members, friends, and neighbors in the lives of elder mistreatment victims) which provides supportive counseling, information, and timely referrals.

New York City

A collaboration between New York City’s government and non-profit agencies to improve how professionals, organizations, and systems respond to elder abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation through multi-disciplinary teams, case consultations to professionals, and services to older adults and other community members.
