Guardian Partners is a volunteer-based initiative to meet a growing need in the senior and disabled adult community. Our goal is to not only discover and prevent abuse, but also to teach Guardians how to be effective to ensure those who are incapacitated are treated with the utmost care. These efforts prevent abuse and increase quality of life for seniors and persons experiencing disabilities.
Volunteer Monitors are at the heart of our mission to keep vulnerable Oregonians safe and thriving. You’ll be given training and ongoing support to be successful. Once assigned a case, you’ll meet with the Protected Person in person, but all other interviews can be conducted virtually. Then, you'll furnish a report to the Court, identifying any evidence of abuse or neglect.
- Typical cases requires eight to twelve hours of time. Commitment is at least 10 cases- can be done consecutively.
- Highly flexible - can be scheduled on your time at your convenience.
- Operating in Clackamas, Douglas, Lane, Marion, Multnomah, Tillamook and Yamhill Counties.
- The difference you make in a Protected Person’s life can be profound!

Founded in 2013, Guardian Partners has grown to serve four counties - Clackamas, Douglas, Multnomah, and Tillamook - with additional counties anticipated soon. We monitor over 150 cases each year, with 14% of those cases requiring Court intervention and one-third benefiting from referrals from the volunteer Monitor.
