Elderly and Disabled Adult Victim
Our Elderly and Disabled Adult Victim (EDAV) program addresses and overcomes barriers facing people in the 60 and older communities in the St. Louis area who have been affected by crime in the past or present. These barriers include gaps in identifying and reporting crimes and/or abuse and accessing victim services due to otherwise limited resources.
Our Therapy and Supportive Services through EDAV include individual and group therapy, crisis and trauma-focused therapy, safety planning, education and support regarding victims’ rights, case management, assistance in filing compensation claims, information on community resources, and transportation-related to victims’ services.
Therapy is provided by licensed masters-level clinicians, certified as clinical trauma professionals. Therapists can travel into the homes of clients who cannot leave for physical, financial, or mental/emotional reasons. Elderly and Disabled Adult Victim therapists and case managers network with senior centers, homeless shelters, local agencies, community leaders, and community events to reach people who need support or therapy relating to victimization. Case managers assist therapists through a team approach by conducting client intake and community outreach to facilitate communication processes.
All services are free and confidential. Call us today at 314-873-3501 or
