We are seeking volunteers in Illinois to provide companionship and advocacy to individuals with disabilities.

Through the Office of the State Guardian (OSG) Volunteer Visitors*, you will be paired with an adult ward of the state who lives in your community and visit with them each month.

Many of our wards have become alienated from family over the years and don't often have friends in the area. Your presence will mean so much.

Contact us now to learn more about how you can make an impact on our clients' lives.

*Note: This program is formerly known as the Volunteer Guardianship and Advocacy Program
