This protection toolkit would not have been made possible without the leadership and participation of the Alabama Interagency Council for the Prevention of Elder Abuse, which includes 30 public and private agencies and advocacy organizations. A special thanks goes to the Prevention Council’s Community and Professional outreach Committee which developed this toolkit to better serve and protect Alabama’s elders.

This project is supported by a grant from the Alabama Law Foundation.
