Your comfort and safety is our top priority. Here’s how Rumi works to keep you safe:
- No aspect of your profile will be viewable by anyone who has not set up a profile with Rumi and been approved by Bridges MN. Only profiles that have undergone our safety checks will be approved.
- Until you have both “waved” at each other’s profile, Rumi members will only have access to a limited profile. A limited profile will not show identifiable elements of your profile such as name, pictures, videos, etc.
- You can choose the communication method that you are most responsive and comfortable using.
- Bridges MN will provide resources to help coach you through the process of having difficult conversations as needed.
- Bridges MN has zero tolerance for inappropriate communication or behavior on the Rumi website. Please immediately report any concerning behavior to Bridges MN. If at any time, you feel that communication from another party is inappropriate or concerning, contact Bridges MN. If you ever feel uncomfortable during the matching process, contact Bridges MN.

- Bridges MN can provide guidance in getting to know each other and will help facilitate your initial meetings to ensure comfort and safety is the number one priority.
- All caregivers will go through an onboarding process that includes, but is not limited to, maltreatment of vulnerable adult training, medication administration, CPR, de-escalation, Person-Centered Thinking, and Service Recipient Rights.
- You will be provided a way to contact us 24 hours a day in the event of an emergency.
- Bridges MN will continue to provide quality assurances through scheduled and random check-ins and surveys.
- The Minnesota Adult Abuse Reporting Center (MAARC) provides a toll-free number, 1-844-880-1574, the general public can call to report suspected maltreatment of vulnerable adults. Mandated reporters—including law enforcement, educators, doctors, nurses, social workers and other licensed professionals—can use a web-based reporting system. Reports will be promptly submitted to the appropriate investigative agencies. If you are reporting an emergency that requires immediate assistance from the police / sheriff, fire department or an ambulance, call 911 first, and then call MAARC.
