Guardian Partners is a much-needed program that is demonstrating the potential to significantly reduce abuse and neglect among elder adults, adults with disabilities, and children under guardianship care.

There are two program components:

  • Education to ensure that Guardians and other court-appointed fiduciaries understand their roles and responsibilities.
  • Monitoring of cases by court-appointed, volunteers who provide independent feedback to the Court and identify potential causes for concern.
