The mission of the Adult Protective Services Division is to support and enable County Departments to protect elderly and disabled adults from abuse, neglect, and exploitation and prevent unnecessary institutionalization.

The current population served by YAS includes the most acute, high-risk cohort of young adults in the state between the ages of 18 and APS serves adults 65 and older and dependent adults 18 and older, who are harmed, or threatened with harm, to ensure their right to safety and dignity. APS investigates elder and dependent adult abuse, including cases of neglect and abandonment, as well as physical, sexual and financial abuse.
Adult Protective Services (APS) APS is responsible for the investigation of reports of abuse to elders and dependent adults when the abuse occurs outside of long-term-care facilities. An elderly and dependent adult is defined as: persons 18 to 64 years old, or aged 65 or older who is suspected of being abused or neglected.
