WEST BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A shelter to provide emergency housing for elderly victims of neglect, abuse and exploitation is opening in suburban Detroit.

The Detroit Free Press reports (https://on.freep.com/1QykAUV ) Jewish Senior Life of Metropolitan Detroit will provide a haven for senior citizens who are victims of domestic abuse, neglected by caregivers or who are financially exploited by family members, for example.

The shelter includes a number of studio or one-bedroom apartments primarily located at the Eugene & Marcia Applebaum Jewish Community Campus.

Through grants and contributions, the organization will cover the cost of seniors’ stays for 90 days. Those 60 and older are eligible and they do not need to be from Oakland County. As part of their stay, they will be connected to social workers and services.
