In a society where the older population is predicted to increase, the rates for neglect and abuse cases among the elderly will also likely increase commensurately. Accommodations to serve the needs of these elders in a safe environment are restricted by multiple variables such as the level of care they need, limited insurance coverage and lack of financial resources that often result in their continuous victimization. The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to fund at least three designated beds, a kitchen space and a variety of services in an emergency shelter that serve the abused and neglected elders in Orange County. An extensive literature review and community outreach were performed to investigate the ongoing problem of elder abuse and neglect, and to justify the proposed need in the community.
