We are community members and community builders. We are your neighbors, sharing the burdens and successes that affect the entire state of Minnesota. We strive to bring about positive change and improve outcomes for us all.
RPAMN Works for You
We are a movement for collective action to effect change at the local, regional, and state levels. We are self-organized, and encourage our members to contribute by standing together, taking responsibility, and being actionable for our collective benefit.
We formed RPAMN, a 501c6 nonprofit, to advocate for and represent small, residential customized living providers in Minnesota. The lack of consistency across counties, inefficient rate structures, and the lack of transparency and representation around the constantly changing rules, has made it incredibly difficult for small providers to be successful.

We provide equitable representation that promotes improved outcomes for underrepresented communities
