About C.A.A.N.E.

The formation of C.A.A.N.E. was made possible through a $10,000 grant from the National Center on Elder Abuse. Montgomery County’s Adult Protective Services was only one of 12 grant recipients nationwide.


Montgomery County is a community where older and vulnerable adults live free from abuse, neglect, and exploitation, and are empowered, respected, valued and supported.


To develop collaborative partnerships to prevent and eliminate elder abuse, neglect and exploitation of older and vulnerable adults through comprehensive and effective education, advocacy, intervention and services.
