What Does APS Do?
APS investigates and helps stop abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation as quickly as possible to keep vulnerable adults safe. When we receive a report of alleged abuse, neglect, or financial exploitation, we investigate the situation. When necessary, we partner with law enforcement, medical and financial professionals, and other community partners to arrange for shelter, medical care, and more.
We approach all clients with compassion and respect and strive to give them the best possible support and resources. However, APS cannot force services on an adult who does not want them, nor can we force an adult to leave his or her home unless there is an emergency situation that threatens the adult's life or safety and he or she lacks the capacity to make decisions.
