Wabash Center recruiting court-appointed guardians

Interview about Wabash Center's adult guardianship program

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – The Wabash Center is reintroducing Tippecanoe Adult Guardianship Services. It is a program designed to recruit and train volunteers to serve as court-appointed guardians for adults.

Program coordinator Richard Richardson said there’s a large need for the services in the community.

“It’s mainly to help mentally incapacitated adults that don’t have the ability to make decisions on their own with their social service planning, healthcare decisions and legal representation,” said Richardson on News 18 This Morning.

If you would like more information about volunteering, you can go to the Wabash Center web site or call 765-423-5531.
