Our Mission...

Maximizing protection and dignity of older adults through collaboration, education and advocacy.


Protection and Dignity for Older Adults  




Aging is natural,
abuse is not.

Who we are

OCAPS, the nation’s longest continuous state elder abuse network, has accomplished much throughout the years, thanks to a shared and committed vision of a world without older adult maltreatment.

Activities include: hosting the OCAPS Annual Conference; offering engaging, educational programs for victims and the general public; informing OCAPS members through updates and newsletters; providing technical assistance to local agencies; as well as advocating for more funding and legislative changes to reach our vision through testimony, letter writing campaigns, and meeting with elected and appointed officials.
