Lifeline and the Lake County Probate Court have teamed to create the Lake County Volunteer Guardian Program. There are people who the court has recognized as incapable of serving as their own guardian. They need well-intentioned volunteers to help them manage themselves and their life decisions.
These guardians assist with ensuring the health and safety of their charges by working with service providers and the probate court. They may also need to make healthcare and housing decisions on behalf of their client, if the situation calls for it.
You can learn about the role and responsibilities of being a volunteer guardian during an informational session at 10 a.m. on Monday, March 25, at our Main Branch. You can register to attend online or call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 247. Attending the program does not automatically commit you to participating in the Volunteer Guardian Program.
For more information on the Lake County Volunteer Guardian Program, you can visit Lifeline’s website.
If you’re looking for other ways to help your community, you can participate in our Year of Giving. As part of our 200th anniversary celebration, we’re collecting supplies for a different locally based nonprofit each month this year.
In March, we’re collecting donations for Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers. Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers has helped thousands of Lake and Geauga County residents on their paths of recovery from substance use disorders.
You can support their mission by donating toiletries for Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers’ Residential Treatment facilities, including:
- travel-sized soaps, shampoos and conditioners
- shaving cream or lotion
- feminine hygiene products.
We’ll be collecting donations at our Main, Lake and Headlands Branches all through March.
