The National Adult Protective Services Association (NAPSA) is a national non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization with members in all fifty states. Formed in 1989, the goal of NAPSA is to provide Adult Protective Services (APS) programs a forum for sharing information, solving problems, and improving the quality of services for victims of elder and vulnerable adult mistreatment. Its mission is to strengthen the capacity of APS at the national, state, and local levels, to effectively and efficiently recognize, report, and respond to the needs of elders and adults with disabilities who are the victims of abuse, neglect, or exploitation, and to prevent such abuse whenever possible.
We are made up of volunteers such as myself, Pamela Slaughter. We meet monthly via conference calls. One of our goals is to reach our partners and our potential partners that can help us to spot, report, and respond to the abuse of our clients. We would like to do that in part, by having a great, informative brochure that would explain who we are, who we serve, and how they can report abuse and neglect to us.
Since we have not been able to create a brochure that looks profession enough to share nationally, we’re hoping to find a talented student or teacher that will create one for us, as a volunteer. Your costs/value of your contribution is tax deductible.
We’re looking for a single, three sided brochure that includes photos or illustrations of our clients – those with physical and other disabilities as well as elderly people. We would do our own printing.
Although we can’t pay for this service, we are a national network, and will be sure to recognize the contribution of the brochure design in a number of ways. Also, the contribution is tax deductible. I can share examples of brochures that almost meet our needs, and the designer has freedom to design with input from Pamela Slaughter.
The brochure would be emailed to Pamela Slaughter, and the designer can include their contact/company info on the brochure.
