For the last year and a half Ecumen has joined with a diverse group of ideologies and viewpoints at the non-partisan Citizens League to examine the issue of long-term care financing and develop recommendations for how Minnesota can be a leader nationally in transforming long-term care financing so more people can live empowered lives in their senior years without going into poverty and we can preserve a strong safety net for those who cannot escape a life of poverty.

It’s gained some great media coverage and discussion.  Here is a link to the report and some of the media clips.
