Guardian Advocacy

 

We believe in supported decision making through self determination. Self determination is the ability to make choices based on our own interests and values, a fundamental human right that many of us take for granted.  

 

By partnering with individuals with disabilities and their families and/or others who require enhanced care (as deemed necessary by the courts through written agreements), we seek to help create a stable living environment and increase their quality of life.

Our Mission is to:

•    Help motivate an individual to work toward more  independent living

•    Support an individual in their therapy and rehabilitation

•    Encourage the individual to improve their relationship with family members

The goal of guardianship is always aimed at restoring the ward’s rights
