CC County Elder Abuse Prevention Program

One Call to Reach Us All:
(925) 521-6366
(510) 974-7200

The purpose of the Elder Abuse Protection Program is to prevent and combat the abuse, neglect, and exploitation of elders and dependent adults in Contra Costa County.  The Project is designed to provide direct services to senior in a coordinated manner. The program design focuses on the areas where direct service is most required: financial abuse, case management, and counseling.  The Project also allows the County to put in place a common data collection tool to ensure that these cases are handled in a more coordinated fashion.

To accomplish their mission they seek to increase:

  • Identification  and resolution of elder financial abuse cases in Contra Costa County
  • Safety of elder victims victims of abuse as evidenced by an increase in victims receiving services and reporting safety
  • County service coordination through better understanding of the many forms of elder abuse
  • Community awareness and understanding of elder abuse.

As it was explained to me, this is the umbrella organization for all county elder abuse services.  A councilor will determine what services are needed.  The victim doesn’t have to call all the individual agencies.  The councilor will notify the people that provide the necessary services, and they will contact the victim.

Theater Thursday Presents Sylvia

Live performances by the Vagabond Players

Sylvia

After 22 years of child raising, Greg & Kate have moved to Manhattan.  Greg’s career as a financial trader is winding down, but Kate’s career is offering her more opportunities.  Greg brings home a dog he found in the park – or that has found him – bearing only the name “Sylvia” on her name tag.  Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention.

Sylvia is innocuous and zippy, and perhaps the very definition of disarmingly funny.with a literal last-minute ending that offers one final attempt to convert the cranky with a a key set of puppy-dog eyes.

Thursday August  16
doors open at 1:00 pm, show starts at 1:30 pm

Complementary wine and cheese reception after the performance
