Under the leadership of Probate Judge, Elinore Marsh Stormer, Jewish Family Service recruits, screens and trains volunteer guardians to serve as caring advocates and surrogate decision makers. Volunteer Guardians do not have financial responsibility for the person, but may have to coordinate community resources when needed. By building a trusting, consistent relationship, Volunteer Guardians enhance and empower the lives of those in our community!
A guardianship is a trusting relationship in which one party, called a guardian, acts for an individual called the ward. The law regards the ward as incapable of managing his or her own person and/or affairs.
