MAAA mission and vision
Mission: Assist individuals to age successfully and develop the capacity of communities to care for an aging population.
Vision: Individuals age with dignity in their communities where they are valued and engaged.
We highly value:
- Assisting older adults and caregivers one-on-one during significant life and health transitions
- Engaging the aging services network to learn and work together in new ways
- Partnering with community leaders to advance livable communities for all generations
- Understanding the needs, issues and contributions of an aging population
We serve older adults, persons with disabilities and all those who care for them through an integrated system of information, assistance, education, services and facility-to-home support. We deliver phone-based Senior LinkAge Line® services and provide data maintenance for the website Minnesota.Help.info® in partnership with the Minnesota Board on Aging.
MAAA is the designated regional Area Agency on Aging for the seven-county metropolitan area of the Twin Cities. Area Agencies on Aging were established under the Older Americans Act (OAA) in 1973 to respond to the needs of Americans aged 60 and over. There are more than 600 Area Agencies on Aging in the United States and 7 in Minnesota. Minnesota’s agencies are designated by the Board on Aging to provide three critical functions: OAA funding administration, community planning and service development and information and assistance.
