Elder Justice Council & Adult Protection

Montana's Eastern Elder Justice Council (EEJC) is one of four Council's created throughout the state under an Executive Order by the Governor of Montana.  Each Council is made up of members appointed by the Governor and is tasked with addressing the coordination of agency and community efforts that are aimed at reducing the abuse, neglect and exploitation of senior citizens and adults with disabilities within the region.

Each council has the ability to choose it's own focus area to help it achieve the goals outlined in the Executive Order. The EEJC is focusing on the following areas:

  • Outreach to educate the general public and private sectors on ways to stop and prevent abuse, neglect and exploitation
  • Build an on-line resource directory for relevant training and tools that can be easily accessed and referenced
  • Sponsor legislation that would help prevent abuse, neglect and exploitation including expanding Mandatory Reporting to other sectors while removing barriers that can be seen as a conflict within that sector 

The EEJC strives to meet virtually each month with an in-person meeting each quarter; all meetings are open to the public.
