Be a part of the Solution
TVAC is a proactive collage of Partners across Tennessee, focused on raising Awareness of the various forms of abuse committed against vulnerable and older adults, and seeking Prevention Solutions to these issues wherever possible.
Abuse of the elderly and vulnerable adults is against the law, and Tennessee is a "mandatory reporting" state. If you see abuse, or even suspect that an adult is being abused, neglected, or exploited, you must report it.
Call the Tennessee Department of Human Services' Adult Protective Services unit, toll free at
or contact your local law enforcement agency.
You can be a part of that Solution. Listen to the facts about abuse ... Believe those facts ... Act on that belief. Become involved with your local and/or regional TVAC Affiliate. Please refer to the "Regional Sites" menu selection for contact information.
