Description

Rural communities have a much higher percentage of older adults than urban communities. Are you curious why they aren’t walking in your doors asking for services? Your program is not alone. Sexual violence does happen to older adults and not surprisingly there are barriers for those survivors in seeking services. Join Leah Green from the Resource Sharing Project to learn more about how to support older adult survivors in rural communities. Topics will include risk factors, accessibility, communication, and why rural communities are poised to help this vulnerable population.
