Volunteer Guardians: While many of our cases involve issues of mental health or developmental disabilities that require a trained and experienced staff guardian, others are more routine. A volunteer can easily manage the care of a nursing home resident or developmentally disabled individual in a supportive and stable living situation. Cases handled by volunteers normally involve two hours or less each month.
Our volunteer guardian program recruits, screens and trains people to become court appointed guardians. Volunteers have no financial responsibility for the person but may coordinate community resources to assure their ward(s) have appropriate housing, basic needs and medical care. Volunteers are mentored and guided by our professional staff guardians.
