A Volunteer Guardian with her person!


The VGP trains and matches volunteers who become the legal "Guardian of the Person Only" or substitute decision-maker for individuals with no money, or family support and whose ability to make personal & medical decisions has diminished.

Those served usually live in a nursing home, group home, or other protected setting.

It is the volunteer's goal to enhance the qualtiy of life for the person they serve by advocating for the best possible daily & medical care.

Someone needs you.....because not everyone has someone.

The VGP also serves Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, Franklin & Pickaway Counties.
