As part of our shared mission to enhance the safety and quality of life of victims across the lifespan, NCALL and OVW created Working with Older Survivors of Abuse: A Framework for Advocates. This summary report describes seven guiding principles with minimum guidelines and practical strategies for advocates to consider when working with older survivors.
