Event Details


What is financial abuse? Financial abuse is theft of money, property or personal information. It can also include the misuse of money or property, or withholding funds. It’s usually a pattern rather than a single event, occurring over a long period of time and it may not be detected until funds are severely depleted. Financial abuse can negatively impact your health by reducing the resources available for proper housing, good nutrition, medication and healthy connections.
