Mission Statement

The mission of the Volunteer Visitor Connection is to positively impact the quality of life for clients of the Guardianship Service Board. The vision of the Volunteer Visitor Connection is to expand the support system of clients of the GSB by increasing opportunities for companionship and client advocacy.

Description

The Guardianship Service Board (GSB) is appointed as the Guardian of the Person for adult residents of Franklin County, Ohio with a substantial mental impairment or developmental disability who have been declared incompetent by the Franklin County Probate Court.

Social workers provide guardianship services for GSB clients. Guardians for this vulnerable population spend much of their time during quarterly visits coordinating with service providers to ensure appropriate treatment, assisting clients in meeting their goals, and advocating for clients while making important medical decisions.
