Help is just a phone call away for elders or vulnerable adults and those who care about them. Minnesota Elder Justice Center advocates can provide support and empathetic listening, help you find resources or access to legal information, and assist you with planning next steps.
We provide professional training and community education presentations throughout Minnesota on a wide variety of topics, and we’d be happy to tailor a presentation to suit your needs. Some educational opportunities are eligible for CLE or CEU credit.
Advocating at the Capitol and with public systems is an important way we work to reduce abuse, neglect and financial exploitation of older and vulnerable adults. We work in collaboration with many organizations including non-profits and government-related working groups.
