The Virginia Elder Rights Coalition (VERC) is a network of organizations, agencies, and individuals working together to promote the rights and autonomy of older Virginians through statewide leadership and support of:

  • legislative advocacy;
  • administrative and individual advocacy to secure benefits and services promised under the law;
  • increased responsiveness of government entities to elder rights issues;
  • education and training to understand elder rights; and
  • empowerment of older persons to exercise their rights.
VERC.info was created to provide comprehensive information on Elder Rights to legal and aging professionals in Virginia in order to enhance the quality of life for present and future generations of older adults.

This site was made possible by the award of one of the Partnerships in Law and Aging Program grants. These grants are co-sponsored by the Albert and Elaine Borchard Foundation Center on Law and Aging and the Marie Walsh Sharpe Endowment of the American Bar Association Fund for Justice and Education. The American Bar Association Commission on Legal Problems of the Elderly administered this grant. Site implementation was directed by the Virginia Poverty Law Center and the Virginia Association of Area Agencies on Aging with broad based support from the legal and aging communities.
