The Protector Foundation
protecting those who can't protect themselves
Our mission is, through research and education, to prevent exploitation of those unable to manage their own affairs, through conditions related to age, disability, or otherwise. By their very condition, these people are unable to make their needs known, or sometimes even to ask for help. We will raise awareness of their needs by visual and written means, and we will research and draft best practices and means for optimum oversight of living conditions and administration of financial and personal affairs of those who can't handle this on their own.
