Justice Alliance for Vulnerable Adults (JAVA)

Java Logo

JAVA is a coalition of organizations and individuals working to prevent abuse of vulnerable adults through action and education.   

The coalition was established in 2010 with support from the National Committee on Elder Abuse and is housed in the Center for the Study of Aging (CSA) at Boise State University.  

Its 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. 

Our Vision: Every vulnerable adult is visible and valued.

Please contact Mary Holden at for more information about JAVA monthly meetings and activities.
