Guardian w/ward
A perfect match! A guardian helping her ward.

Do you enjoy helping others? Can you make personal decisions for adults who are unable to make their own decisions? If you answered yes, then become a Volunteer Guardian!

Guardians are needed when adults can no longer make important life decisions for themselves. These at-risk adults need protection from abuse, neglect, and/or exploitation. You can provide that protection through advocacy and decision-making.

In just a couple of hours a month, you can make a tremendous impact in the life of an at-risk adult.

A two-hour training session will help you become a successful volunteer guardian. On-going support and assistance is just a phone call away.

Make an impact, get involved NOW!

NOTE: Volunteers have no financial obligation for the ward.
