One Team. One Goal.

Adult Protective Services' (APS) mission is to protect older adults and people with disabilities from abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation. But we don't do this work alone! APS counts on the efforts of a wide variety of partners. Our Partnering to Protect campaign is designed to foster strong and effective collaborations with partners across the state. Together we can protect the unprotected.

"APS cannot do this work alone. APS needs partners to help restore dignity to the lives of individuals who have been subjected to abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation."
