Recovery For Abused Women

“Empowering the abused woman to recover with God's truth"

Domestic Violence Series for August 14, 2012 “Related Articles and Resources for Domestic Violence and Abuse” (Part 4B)

This section Contains Resources for State of Florida Residence:

Vulnerable and Special Needs Adults Hotline: 1-800-962-2873

The Adult Protective Services program, mandated by Chapter 415, Florida Statutes, is a system of specialized social services directed toward protecting vulnerable adults who are unable to manage their own affairs, from further occurrences of abuse, neglect, or exploitation. After a report has been called into the Hotline it is referred to the Protective Investigations Unit closest to the location of the victim. The Unit office then dispatches a Protective Investigator within 24 hours. The Investigator contacts the alleged victim and assesses the immediate risk of second party abuse, neglect, or exploitation.
