Adult Protection: news, initiatives, reports, work groups

Program overview | Policies and procedures

Everyone needs help sometimes 

As Minnesotans, we look out for each other. It’s why the Minnesota Department of Human Services and other state agencies, along with counties and communities across the state, work to promote safety and well-being for all. But you can’t solve every problem by yourself. That’s why we’re here, doing our best to help make sure those in need are safe and supported.

MAARC – Adult Abuse Reporting

If you suspect something is wrong, speak up. One conversation could change someone’s life.

Minnesota’s Adult Protective Services (APS) exists so that all adults who are vulnerable to abuse, neglect, or exploitation are supported to live in safety and dignity, consistent with their own culture, values, and goals, and so people concerned about them have resources for support.
