Assisted Living Licensure Passed

Elder Voice Family Advocates is the only advocacy group that defends and protects elders and vulnerable adults living in long-term care. We would not be here without the help of our members, their families, and the many individuals who testified, wrote emails, and came to legislative hearings.

We would like to say a special thank you to the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), their teams, and our elected officials who worked tirelessly to pass this important legislation. Learn more
