VOLUNTEER GUARDIANS NEEDED. As members of our community grow older or otherwise confront disabilities, they sometimes need the assistance of a guardian to make healthcare, housing and other decisions regarding their daily needs and living arrangements. Often there are no available family members willing and able to provide that assistance. You can help meet the critical need for guardians in Allen County by becoming a Crime Victim Services Volunteer Guardian. Crime Victim Services staff support you with decision making guidance for support services arrangements, housing, medical care, and recreation. Mileage is paid. Additionally, staff assist guardians with training reminders, annual reports and plans required by Allen County Probate Court.
Intrigued? Attend our 1-hour information session to learn more: Thursday, Oct. 18 at noon or 6 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
We'll work with your schedule.
