Collaborative Response to Elder and Vulnerable Adult Abuse (CREVAA)
Short-Term Support for Elderly Victims of Crime
The CREVAA program serves all 95 counties in Tennessee and addresses the unmet needs of elder and vulnerable adult victims of crime by providing local advocates in each AAAD area to ensure the provision of direct services to victims.
CREVAA advocates work with local stakeholders, including Adult Protective Services; law enforcement; district attorneys; and other aging service providers to offer whatever assistance is needed by victims to help them recover after a crime occurs. The program is funded thought the Tennessee Office of Criminal Justice Project (OCJP) and with funds from the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA).
