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.
