2015: Minnesota Adult Abuse Reporting Center (MAARC) Launched

The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) created a new central system for reporting the suspected maltreatment of vulnerable adults. This system is called the "Minnesota Adult Abuse Reporting Center," or MAARC. Its purpose is to help prevent and alleviate abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation of elder and vulnerable populations.

MAARC "went live" on July 1, 2015, and created a streamlined system for citizen access to reporting across Minnesota. In addition, the central system allowed for more efficient data capture and analysis.

The MAARC system is located within the website of the Department of Human Services, ( and offers a single toll-free number for use state-wide in making a report: 844-880-1574. Additionally, mandated reporters can make a report online by visiting:
