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 communities who are 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, ongoing staff support and will complete background checks. Case Monitors are court ordered to meet with the adult under guardianship in their place of residence, interview their guardian and other professionals, and furnish a report to the Probate Court identifying any evidence of abuse or neglect as well as any recommendations or interventions.

  • Volunteering is highly flexible - scheduled on your time at your convenience!
  • Volunteers commit to a minimum of 10 case reviews.
  • Typical cases require 5-10 hours of time.
  • If you’re interested in psychology, social work, law, or just want to give back, this will be a great opportunity for you!

Schedule an interview today! Visit us at: guardian-partners.org

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 2014, Guardian Partners has grown to serve 14 counties - Clackamas, Clatsop, Douglas, Gilliam, Hood River, Jackson, Lane, Marion, Multnomah, Tillamook, Sherman, Wasco, Wheeler, and Yamhill - with additional counties anticipated soon. We strive to review all adult guardianship cases in Oregon. Our volunteers offer local resources for 80% of cases monitored and recommend court intervention as needed.

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