Who We Are

How we got here:

The Western Montana Chapter for the Prevention of Elder Abuse was started in 2000. It began as a state initiative providing payee and guardianship services to individuals who could not manage themselves or their finances. AmeriCorps/Vista Volunteers helped get the Chapter started by assisting in fund raising, education and development activities. 2002 Cindy Shott, a Missoula attorney specializing in business and financial law accepted the position as the Director of the Chapter. Currently, she is still the In House Counsel. Ms. Shott helped the Chapter grow by introducing additional clients, roles and new staff.
