Case Monitor - Volunteer to Prevent Abuse

Save to Favorites

GUARDIAN PARTNERS

  • 11 people are interested
Volunteers

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 virtually meet with the Protected Person as well as their Guardian and furnish a report to the Court, identifying any evidence of abuse or neglect.

  • Typical cases requires eight to twelve hours of time.
  • Highly flexible - can be scheduled on your time at your convenience.
  • Operating in Clackamas, Douglas, Multnomah, and Tillamook Counties.
  • The difference you make in a Protected Person’s life can be profound!

Mission Statement

Guardian Partners assists the Court in protecting our most vulnerable through monitoring and education. These efforts reduce the potential for abuse, neglect, and exploitation of Protected People under guardianship.

Description

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 as well as their Guardian and furnish a report to the Court, identifying any evidence of abuse or neglect.

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.

The difference a Case Monitor makes in a Protected Person's life can be profound.
