We’re CHANGING OUR NAME to Guardian Partners to better reflect our mission to prevent abuse, neglect and exploitation of protected persons by partnering with the Court, fiduciaries, and other community stakeholders and resources. Look out for an official announcement and the unveiling of our new website in the coming weeks!
COMMUNITY EDUCATION CLASSES continue to run smoothly. 172 newly appointed guardians, conservators, personal representatives, and trustees have successfully completed the course so far this year. Visit our WEBSITE for dates and locations of upcoming classes.
LEATHAN GRAVES-HIGHSMITH has been hired as our Education and Communications Manager. He brings with him more than eight years of communications and journalism experience, as well as a wide range of experiences in education. He is excited to be contributing to an area of so much need and passionate about continuing to grow SAVO/Guardian Partners into an organization that can substantively improve protected people’s lives.
Since the beginning of May, VOLUNTEER CASE MONITORS have been assigned to 10 new guardianship cases. Case Monitors serve as powerful advocates for protected persons and their reports help the Courts identify and prevent neglect, abuse and exploitation.
Our mission is to prevent abuse, neglect and exploitation of older adults, people experiencing disabilities, and children by monitoring guardianships and educating court-appointed guardians and money managers.
