Goodwill Industries seeks volunteers guardians

Volunteers are being sought to aid older and disabled adults as Volunteer Guardians.

Volunteer guardians make health and welfare decisions and advocate for adults who can no longer make decisions for themselves.

Participants will be trained and matched with an elderly or disabled adult to become their legal guardian.

Guardians will be appointed by the court after thorough screening and training.

Volunteer Guardian Services is provided by Goodwill Industries of Southeastern Wisconsin through a grant from the Kenosha County Division of Aging and Disability Services, 8600 Sheridan Road.
