ADULT Protective Services - Placer County
If your life is in danger or you need to report an emergency situation, call 911.

The Adult Protective Services Program is intended to provide intervention activities directed toward safeguarding the well-being of elders and dependent adults suffering from or at risk of abuse or neglect, including self-neglect. A special 24-hour, 7-day a week, response program is available by calling Adult Protective Services: 916-787-8860 or toll free 888-886-5401.

APS Eligibility:
Elder (60 years and older) and dependent adults (18-59 years old) who experience abuse, neglect, self-neglect or financial exploitation and otherwise meet the eligibility criteria for Adult Protective Services (APS); and need housing related supports.

Note: As defined in W&IC section 15610.23: “(a) ‘Dependent adult’ means any person residing in this state, between the ages of 18 and 59 years, who has physical or mental limitations that restrict his or her ability to carry out normal activities or to protect his or her rights including, but not limited to, persons who have physical or developmental disabilities or whose physical or mental abilities have diminished because of age.

Home Safe is a homelessness prevention demonstration grant that will serve APS clients who are at imminent risk of homelessness or recently became homeless due to abuse, neglect, self-neglect, or financial exploitation.  The goal of the Home Safe program is to support the safety and housing stability of individuals involved in APS by providing short-term housing related assistance. Program is expected to be operational now until 2024.
