Job Summary

FiftyForward is currently seeking resourceful and action oriented candidates interested in joining our team as the full-time Victory Over Crime In-Home Coordinator

Older adults experience the same crimes as the rest of the population, including financial victimization, neglect, and physical, sexual, or emotional abuse. However, they may be less likely to recover from their victimization, and are often sought out because of their age and decreased likelihood of reporting. The FiftyForward Victory Over Crime program supports older adults who have been victimized by crime through support, case management, legal advocacy, connection to counseling, and community referrals.  

The Victory Over Crime In-Home Coordinator provides one-on-one assistance with developing and implementing safety plans, accessing community resources, and navigating the legal system to help program participants regain their independence and plan for their safety to prevent future harm.
