AARP Fraud Watch Network and Volunteers of America Launch New Program for Emotional Support

The AARP Fraud Watch Network and Volunteers of America (VOA) created a new, free program to help you. It’s VOA | ReST, which stands for resilience, strength and time. The program is designed to address the emotional impact of your experience. We offer free facilitated peer-discussion groups that seek to provide emotional support for you and others in similar situations. Family members are invited to participate at your discretion or take part in separate sessions for family members only.

The AARP Fraud Watch Network VOA | ReST program features small groups whose members are led in discussion by one or more trained peer facilitators. The aim is to help you re-establish trust, integrate your experience and build back your resilience despite a difficult and painful occurrence.

Online, hour-long sessions are scheduled nearly every day. You can join by a computer, tablet or smartphone. Discussions are confidential. You are welcome to attend one session or several – it’s your choice.

Experiencing a scam can be devastating, but it doesn’t have to define you. Sign up for a session and take an important step toward emotional recovery.
