What is Elder Justice?
The Elder Justice program at Sunnyside Community Services (SCS) supports older adults over 60 years of age who are experiencing emotional or physical abuse, neglect, financial exploitation, or other circumstances that limit their independence.
Identifying common warning signs is a critical first step to tackling elder abuse. To combat this issue, SCS offers educational trainings and outreach to community partners, professional groups, and the public
The Elder Justice program provides service to individuals living in Queens (Community Districts 1-7 and 11), including Long Island City, Sunnyside, Astoria, Jackson Heights, Corona, Flushing, Rego Park, and many other neighborhoods.
