Lus Hmoob | Af Soomaali | Español | Tiếng Việt
Minnesota strives to ensure safe environments and services for vulnerable adults and encourages reporting of suspected maltreatment. A vulnerable person could be the last person you'd think. You could be the difference.
The Minnesota Adult Abuse Reporting Center (MAARC) provides a toll-free number, 1-844-880-1574, the general public can call to report suspected maltreatment of vulnerable adults. Mandated reporters-including law enforcement, educators, doctors, nurses, social workers and other licensed professionals-can use a web-based reporting system. Reports will be promptly submitted to the appropriate investigative agencies.
If you are reporting an emergency that requires immediate assistance from the police / sheriff, fire department or an ambulance, call 911 first then call MAARC.
