Mission Statement

The Center for At Risk Elders (CARE) Inc., is a lawyer lead team of advocates guarding Indiana's neglected, abused and exploited elders.

Description

The Volunteer Advocate Program is a key component of the Center for At Risk Elders (CARE). Far too many adults and elders are unable to make quality decisions for themselves as a result of an incapacity, requiring guardian services. Yet a significant number have no family or friend who is appropriate to serve as a guardian. This is where the Volunteer Advocates Program comes in. CARE matches Volunteer Advocates one-on-one with men and women in need of a guardian.

At CARE we also have the need for future social workers, public policy makers, and gerontology students who would like more applied experience working with a vulnerable population such as those we serve.
