      World Elder Abuse Awareness Walk

      Please make plans to bring one or one hundred to this free, family friendly walk. The event will feature live music from the Knotty G's, food trucks (Doc Browns and The Hop), kid's activities, and aging resources.

      Each year, an estimated 5 million older persons are abused, neglected, and exploited. In addition, elders throughout the United States lose an estimated $2.6 billion or more annually due to elder financial abuse and exploitation, funds that could have been used to pay for basic needs such as housing, food, and medical care. Unfortunately, no one is immune to abuse, neglect, and exploitation. It occurs in every demographic, and can happen to anyone—a family member, a neighbor, even you. Yet it is estimated that only about one in five of those crimes are ever discovered.

      In Buncombe County you can make a Protective Service referral or report by calling (828) 250-5800 anytime, day or night. No appointment is needed.

      Cost: Free -
