Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our mission is to determine that the needs of Stark County Wards are being met and protect them from neglect or exploitation.
By volunteering for this program, you can impact the lives of vulnerable individuals in Stark County Ohio.
Guardianship is needed when a person known as a "ward" is determined to be unable to make decisions for himself due to a mental or physical disability. The ward may be suffering from conditions such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, developmental disability, autism, or an incapacitating injury. They are some of the most vulnerable people in the community, and they rely on their guardians to make their healthcare and financial decisions.
The volunteer Court Angel is an important point of contact between the Court and the growing number of wards because the Court Angel acts as the eyes and ears of the Court. Court Angels volunteer one or more days per month, at their convenience, making visits to adult wards at local nursing homes, group homes, and private residences. They speak with the ward, his guardian, and his caretakers to find out what life is like for the ward. Then, they file a report with the Court that describes the ward’s quality of care and overall well-being.
