Champlain Elder Abuse Response Coalition (CEARC)
The Champlain Elder Abuse Response Coalition (CEARC) is committed to the principle that all seniors have the right to live in a safe environment free of abuse and neglect. We do this through increased awareness, education, development of community strategies and programs designed to respond to this very real and growing problem.
