Support an investment in Avivo
Since Avivo first opened in 1960, we’ve helped more than 450,000 people to live well and work well. Now we need your help. The Minnesota legislature (house and senate) is considering an investment in Avivo that could help us improve and expand our regional recovery, employment, and career education center in Minneapolis.
Here’s how you can help:
Take a moment to email your own state representative and state senator in support of Avivo. On Twitter, look for our hashtag #AvivoNext60 and retweet/like/share tweets with this hashtag.

Here’s a quick link to find out who your legislators are, as well as their official email addresses. Here’s a sample email, where you can copy and paste and customize for your specific needs:

I’m one of your constituents, and live at [fill in your recognizable cross streets here].
I’m writing in support of HF 599 and SF 778, bipartisan bills which support an investment in the nonprofit Avivo. Since opening in 1960, Avivo has served more than 450,000 people with chemical and mental health services, housing support, career education, and employment services. In 2019, they helped nearly 13,000 people achieve recovery, find housing stability, and achieve employment and economic advancement.
An investment in Avivo will enable them to expand their services and help more Minnesotans live well and work well.
