Union County Guardianship Services (previously known as Union County Volunteer Guardian Program)
offers a range of services for adults in our county who have been deemed by the probate court to be unable to manage their own affairs and
who do not have family members or friends who can fulfil the role of guardian. Volunteer Guardians are provided training and supervision to serve as “Guardian of the Person” when possible. In more challenging cases, our two staff guardians assume this role.
Individuals served by our agency are adults over 18 years of age living in Union County. For many reasons, their ability to process information and conduct their affairs is diminished, they are alone, and they need your help.
Guardians do not have financial responsibility for the person.
Regular personal contact to ensure your client is in a safe environment is the key requirement. You will receive initial training and
on-going support from the UCGS office.
We hope you will take a few moments to learn more about UCGS and the services that we offer.
