What is Protecting Vulnerable Adults?

Protecting Vulnerable Adults (PVA) was founded by legal professionals and sexual abuse experts, Gregory Love and Kimberlee Norris. Through their law practice focused on sexual abuse, they recognized a vital need to equip Organizations to better protect Vulnerable Adults from sexual abuse. 

The risk is real and preventable. Prevention starts with awareness.

Why Choose Protecting Vulnerable Adults?

With over 60 years combined experience in sexual abuse litigation, consultation and crisis management, Love & Norris understand the risk of sexual abuse and how it unfolds within vulnerable populations. Predatory behavior has predictable patterns– the abuser’s grooming process–which is predictable and therefore preventable.

PVA provides comprehensive sexual abuse prevention through Training and appropriate Background Checks.
