ABOUT THE SESSION
Enterprise is hosting a series of capacity building workshops designed to guide affordable housing providers, building managers, and other front-line housing staff in New York City through best practices for housing senior tenants who are aging in their buildings. Each training examines a common problem regarding housing seniors, and offers methods and resources that managers, resident service coordinators and property owners can use to better support their tenants, staff, and buildings.
This particular training will focus on elder abuse, including physical harm and psychological and financial exploitation. The training will be facilitated by Martha H. Pollack and Danielle Palmisano of JASA’s Elder Abuse Training Institute.
Martha H. Pollack LCSW-R is the JASA Manhattan District Director. Her responsibilities involve overseeing a wide range of JASA services in this borough including housing, programs that provide social service and recreational activities for older adults. Martha also chairs the annual NYC Elder Abuse Conference and runs the JASA Elder Abuse Training Institute. She is an active participant in the supervisory group for the Manhattan Family Justice Center and a member of the Steering Committee of the New York City Elder Abuse Center.
