Elder Justice Coalitions stand to gain a lot from joining or establishing alliance with elected officials. Involving elected officials can bolster the mission of the elder justice coalition groups and in some instances help secure funds for abuse prevention. Learn how to involve your elected officials and how to balance the role of education and prevention. As in the case with Multnomah County, Oregon, a Financial Abuse Specialist Team was created and funded via a federal grant through the efforts of Adult Protective Services, the District Attorney, County Commissioners and two state Senators.
The webinar will feature Mohammad Bader and Jay Pentheny. Mohammad Bader is a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), a past board elected member of the National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (NCPEA) and the current coordinator of the Multnomah County Interagency Committee for Abuse Prevention (ICAP). Mohammad created the first Financial Abuse Specialist Team (FAST) in Multnomah County, Oregon in 2007. Jay Pentheny is a 20 year veteran with the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office and is assigned to the Multnomah County FAST.
