ILS Awarded $400,000 Grant To Help Elderly Crime Victims
Exciting News! ILS has been awarded a $400,000 grant to provide services to abused senior citizens.
“As Indiana’s senior population continues to grow, unfortunately, so has the incidence of abuse,” said ILS Executive Director Jon Laramore. “Additional safeguards are needed to protect our seniors from long-lasting harm, particularly those made more vulnerable by illness or a small fixed income.”
Two attorneys and a paralegal have been assigned to the project and will work closely with Indiana Adult Protective Services. Dennis Frick, director of ILS’s senior law project in Indianapolis and former chair of the elder law section of the Indiana State Bar Association, will supervise the initiative.
