The Vulnerable Adult Justice Project

Founded in 2007 and administratively housed at William Mitchell College of Law, the Vulnerable Adult Justice Project (VAJP) is a unique, statewide advocacy collaborative. Shared dedication to improving systems and resources to protect vulnerable adults is one reason that Minnesota stands as a leader among states in vulnerable adult protection.
Acting through legislative, policy, and educational efforts, the VAJP exists to protect Minnesota’s most vulnerable citizens from maltreatment, including abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation. Participants in the VAJP include professionals from adult protection agencies, public advocacy organizations, elder and disability organizations, health care providers, law enforcement, city and county attorneys, private attorneys, and other government organizations.
