The Minnesota Elder Justice Center

Providing support and education to stop elder abuse.


To mobilize communities to prevent and alleviate abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation of older and vulnerable adults.


Minnesota Elder Justice Center is a trusted resource that improves lives, communities, and systems with and on behalf of older and vulnerable adults.

The Issue

Physical abuse. Emotional abuse. Financial exploitation. Neglect. Sexual Assault. Elder abuse occurs in many forms, and often victims experience more than one type of abuse. 1 in 10 older adults is a victim of elder abuse; studies show that in older adults who have a cognitive impairment or dementia, 1 in 5 are victims of elder abuse. 

Our Work - Fulfilling our Mission

The Minnesota Elder Justice Center provides support, information and resources to older adults and vulnerable adults, and their loved ones, around issues of abuse, neglect and financial exploitation, issues that are tragically common and under-reported. Every day we take calls from older adults and family members, helping them problem solve the victimization they are experiencing. 

We also mobilize communities to prevent and alleviate abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation of elders and vulnerable adults. We do this by:

  • Supporting victims, families and older adults experience elder abuse, with free support, information, systems navigation, legal advocacy, and legal representation. 
  • Providing community presentations on elder abuse, along with strategies for addressing and preventing abuse.
  • Offering professional education and training to institutions who work with older or vulnerable adults – we highlight effective practices in social services, financial services, law enforcement and health care, incorporating emerging research and case studies in the relevant areas of study.
  • Engaging in policy and systems change work - taking the problems our victims are experiencing, and working to strengthen Minnesota’s systems and resources for the protection of vulnerable adults.

All of our services are free of charge.

As an organization with a rich history of collaboration and accomplishments in addressing abuse of older and vulnerable adults, we rely on your support to fulfill our mission.
