Film and Panel: Fleeced: Speaking Out Against Senior Financial Abuse

Posted by United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey on June 9, 2014


The National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC), United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and local partners invite you to attend a screening of Fleeced: Speaking Out Against Senior Financial Abuse.

Pennsylvania has the fourth highest senior population (65+) by percentage in the U.S. and one in five older Americans is the victim of financial fraud and abuse. Because we know our region’s senior population is only growing, we want to create a system of care that’s ready to support them.
