Protective Services for Disabled ND Protection and Advocacy

Benefit Category: State

Protective services

P&A receives reports of alleged abuse, neglect and exploitation of individuals with disabilities. If there is probable cause, P&A investigates (or has another entity investigate) the allegation. When appropriate, the P&A accesses protective services on behalf of the individual. Such services may include securing a guardian or conservator, assisting the individual with finding alternative living arrangements, or assisting the individual with identifying other service options. While P&A's authority to provide protective services focuses primarily on adults, protective services may also be provided to children with disabilities when Child Protective Services has determined that the situation or incident is not within their criteria.
