Recognizing the importance of addressing financial exploitation in the Granite State, AARP New Hampshire has generously donated $5,000 to support NH FAST’s public awareness campaign “Stay Connected NH.” The Stay Connected NH campaign includes a series of TV and radio ads that connect Granite Staters, who have been or are at risk of financial exploitation, to trusted resources where they can get help. Stayconnectednh.org, the campaign’s web site, includes information on financial exploitation and links to various federal and state entities that assist victims.
“We are extremely grateful to AARP New Hampshire for its generous donation,” said Ryan Hale, NH FAST Co-Chair. “The Stay Connected NH campaign has allowed us to reach out across the state to let people know about financial exploitation and connect them with trusted resources to get help. This additional funding from AARP New Hampshire will enable us to continue this vital effort.”
Created in 2013, NH FAST is a multi-disciplinary group focused on addressing financial exploitation in our state. Members include representatives from the Elder Abuse and Exploitation Unit of the NH Department of Justice, the NH Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services, the NH Judicial Branch, US Attorney’s Office, NH Legal Assistance, the NH Banker’s Association, the Alzheimer’s Association of MA/NH, AARP NH, and other key organizations.
