What is our Mission? 

To promote the safety, independence and quality of life for older persons and persons with disabilities (those over age 18 years) who are being mistreated, are in danger of being mistreated and who are unable to protect themselves.  

What do we do?  

Our Team provides public and professional education to the community at-large. They develop resources for prevention, intervention, treatment and case consultation to the local welfare agency to better enable the agency to carry out its adult protection functions to meet the community’s needs for adult protection services. The team actively works to foster community awareness in understanding adult protection issues.  

Who is involved? 

The Crow Wing County Adult Protection Team is a collaborative team comprised of local professionals with backgrounds in social work, guardianship, veteran’s services, senior care, law enforcement, mental health, financial services, ombudsman, emergency care, long term care facilities and more. The Adult Protection Team is authorized by Minn. Stat., §626.5571.  

How can you help?  

We are asking you to partner with us to actively work towards fostering community awareness in the understanding of adult protection issues that impact us all either directly or indirectly.
