In 2017, the NYC Elder Abuse Center was awarded a 3-year contract with the NYC Department for the Aging to bring multidisciplinary teams to all of NYC’s boroughs.

During Year 1, NYCEAC will:

  • Provide case consultations to the teams and to professionals in the community.
  • Provide in-service trainings to professionals in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
  • Create a replicable, sustainable, high quality model. (We don’t want to scale problems!)
  • Work with stakeholders in Queens, the Bronx and SI to bring teams to those boroughs in 2018.
During Year 2, NYCEAC will:
  • Continue to provide team, case consultation and training services in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
  • Start teams in Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island by Summer 2018
