ARRM is a nonprofit association of more than 200 providers, businesses and advocates dedicated to leading the advancement of community-based services that support people living with disabilities in their pursuit of meaningful lives. Founded in 1970, ARRM continues to lead positive industry reforms that support Minnesotans with disabilities.
We educate, train and connect our members; support quality
services and programs; reform licensing and standards; develop industry
research; advocate for and enact legislative remedies; and promote
awareness of disability services.
- People living with disabilities should enjoy the full rights of citizenship.
- What is in the best interest of people living with disabilities is in the best interest of the providers who support them.
- Minnesota needs a viable private provider sector to promote consumer choice, adequate funding, and appropriate regulations.
What does the acronym 'ARRM' stand for?
- Offer a broad range of support Home & Community-Based Services to more than 34,000 Minnesotans living with disabilities. People served include those who live in their own homes, in adult foster care settings, and in other community settings.
- Our members support people with developmental, physical, and intellectual disabilities, as well as brain injury, autism, mental health needs, and more.

- Collectively employ 27,000 staff in Minnesota.

The ARRM acronym stands for 'Association of Residential Resources in Minnesota.' However, because our members provide a wide range of community-based services in addition to residential supports
we now refer to our organization as 'ARRM'.
