This web seminar will provide participants with practical tips on creating and maintaining a coordinated community response (CCR) to address issues of elder abuse and financial exploitation. Attendees will learn strategies to bridge common gaps seen between senior service providers, victim advocates at community-based organizations, and other partners involved in the response to survivors of abuse later in life. In addition to providing a blueprint for building comprehensive coalitions to address crimes against older adults in a holistic way, this presentation will offer tips on how to ensure the sustainability of a coordinated community response.

- Identify and understand the partners who could and should be involved in a CCR;

- Identify the concrete action steps necessary to create and deploy education, outreach, and policy advocacy plans; and,
- Understand the landscape of existing funding streams to help support the development of elder CCRs as well as identify new initiatives to sustain efforts.
