Prevent Abuse

Stopping Abuse Before It Happens

The Justice Center's abuse prevention efforts are critical to advancing its mission to support and protect the health, safety, and dignity of all people with special needs and disabilities.  In order to prevent abuse and neglect, The Justice Center produces materials to help equip staff with the tools and skills they need to identify situations that pose a risk of harm to people receiving services.

Signature for Safety
Code of Conduct
The Code of Conduct is a framework for certain employees to help people with special needs “live self-directed, meaningful lives in their communities, free from abuse and neglect, and protected from harm”. Certain employees must read and sign the code upon employment, and annually.

Spotlight on Prevention

The information contained in the Justice Center’s Spotlight on Prevention toolkits is offered as a resource for provider agencies and staff. These resources are intended to be used as a guide that may be modified as needed to apply to particular types of programs and specific age groups of vulnerable people.
