Volunteer to be a Guardianship Advocate

Become a Guardian Advocate to brighten the life of a senior or an adult with a disability. Guardian Advocates make short, regular visits to a client to provide companionship and a higher quality of life by advocating for the person's needs. Guardian Advocates help ensure that our clients are enjoying the best possible quality of life.  They report directly to an assigned Guardianship Program staff member to share their observations on clients’ well being. Volunteers are invaluable in their role in helping prevent neglect or abuse.

Guardian Advocates are required to volunteer at least 2 hours per month. Although no prior experience is necessary, volunteers need to meet the following requirements: complete a volunteer application, agree to a background check, provide references, and complete 6 hours of training.

Pro Bono Attorneys are also needed to handle all required legal filings and court work on a pro bono basis, so that Family Eldercare may establish and maintain guardianships.
