Adult & Family Services

Our building remains closed to the public. Please call before you come for information. Some services are by appointment only. Please note if you do come for an appointment that under Governor Walz’s Executive Order 20-81, masks are now required to enter any of our government buildings or when waiting outside to receive services. For a full description of the Executive Order and related exemptions, please visit the State of Minnesota website.

"Partnering to Provide Education, Access, Choice, & Support"

As part of our stated mission, Adult & Family Services provides support and assistance for people who have serious mental health problems, chronic addictions, developmental disabilities, those who are elderly or have disabilities and want services at home, and individuals in need of adult protection.

New initiatives in the division include:

  • Collaboratives with community providers to enhance behavioral health services
  • Changes in practices to allow consumers to direct their services
  • Development of supportive housing
  • Increasing staff expertise in protecting vulnerable adults from financial exploitation
