Volunteer to provide wellness checks for adults under guardianship!

Guardian Partners is a volunteer-based nonprofit offering education, resources, and oversight for our disabled and senior community under guardianship. Our goal is to not only discover and prevent abuse, but also to teach Guardians how to be effective in ensuring vulnerable Oregonians are treated with respect and the utmost care.

Volunteer Case Monitors receive extensive training, including partnership with an experienced Case Monitor, and will be given ongoing support to polish those interview skills. Case Monitors will meet with the incapacitated adult and their Guardian, furnish a report to the Court identifying any evidence of abuse or neglect as well as any recommendations.

  • We ask for a minimum commitment of 10 case interviews, completion of background checks and training, and be 18+ years of age.
  • Typical cases require 5 - 10 hours of time.
  • Volunteering is highly flexible - scheduled on your time at your convenience!
  • Operating in Clackamas, Douglas, Jackson, Lane, Marion, Multnomah, Tillamook and Yamhill Counties.

Contact us for an interview today!

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.

Founded in 2013, Guardian Partners has grown to serve eight counties - Clackamas, Douglas, Jackson, Lane, Marion, Multnomah, Tillamook, and Yamhill - with additional counties anticipated soon. We strive to review all guardianship cases in Oregon, roughly 15,000. We monitor over 150 cases each year, with 14% of those cases requiring Court intervention and one-third benefiting from referrals from the volunteer Case Monitor.

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