Organization Information

Mission Statement

We are committed to maintaining the health, stability, and emotional well-being of adults under guardianship through the use of support, advocacy, and volunteer education. Through this trusting, consistent relationship, we will enhance and empower the lives of those in our community.

Description

The Volunteer Guardian Program is a collaboration of community social services that includes Summit County Probate Court, Summit County Public Health, the Department of Job & Family Service, the ADM Board and the Summit County DD Board.

Our goal is to match compassionate volunteers to serve as court-appointed Guardians of the Person to individuals in nursing homes and group homes in Summit County who are no longer able to make their own health care and placement decisions. Volunteer guardians serve as a voice and provide advocacy and decision-making to those in need.
