JAVA logo

The Idaho Justice Alliance for Vulnerable Adults (JAVA) is a network of organizations and individuals working to prevent elder abuse through action and education. JAVA’s vision is to help its members work together towards an Idaho where every vulnerable adult is visible and valued. The organization’s mission is to strengthen community partnerships and resource networks to ensure the dignity, safety, and quality of life of vulnerable adults through advocacy, education, intervention, prevention, and policy development.

Highlights of JAVA activities include partnering with Idaho Legal Aid Services to develop and distribute the Idaho Senior Legal Guidebook, co-sponsoring the 2011 Idaho Summit on Elder Abuse and Exploitation, and working with the Idaho Crime Prevention Association and Peace Officers Standards and Training organization to provide training on prevention of abuse of vulnerable adults throughout the state. In addition, JAVA sponsors bi-monthly meetings designed to exchange information and strengthen the network of professionals working to assure that every vulnerable adult in Idaho is visible and valued.
