Welcome to the Coalition

Our mission: to promote statewide understanding of elder/at-risk adult abuse and the rights and protections available to elder and at-risk adults.

Since 1993, the Colorado Coalition for Elder Rights and Abuse Prevention (CCERAP) has established a secure reputation throughout Colorado for providing exceptional training opportunities and in-depth information, addressing the most challenging issues facing the elderly.  CCERAP’s activities focus on the identification, prevention and treatment of elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation (including financial exploitation).  CCERAP provides education, training opportunities for professionals in the aging services network, and resources and referrals for all citizens of Colorado.

This is accomplished by quarterly training meetings, newsletters, a website, and collaboration with other organizations and agencies.
CCERAP is supported by a grant from the Older Americans Act program within the Division of Aging and Adult Services, State Unit on Aging, Colorado Department of Human Services. CCERAP has received a grant from the Colorado Nursing Facility Culture Change Accountability Board, an organization devoted to providing education that supports continued transformation and evolution of long term care in Colorado.

The Cigna Foundation and the Wells Fargo Community Assistance Fund have provided grants for technical support of CCERAP activities during FY 2012-13.
