The Senior Justice Assessment Center (SJAC)— the first of its kind in Texas— serves the complex and unique needs of senior victims of abuse, neglect, and/or exploitation. SJAC collaborates with experts in geriatric medicine, social services, protective services, law enforcement, and civil and criminal prosecution, to provide services to seniors. As the senior population grows and the frequency of elder abuse rises in Harris County, SJAC aims to ensure the dignity of seniors by increasing awareness, education, and prosecution of elder abuse.
Services include assessments, multidisciplinary team meetings, case coordination, treatment referrals, education and research.
