Guardianship program seeks volunteers

ASHTABULA — The Patrick Sorohan Volunteer Guardianship Program at Catholic Charities of Ashtabula County is in search of volunteers in the community to serve as Guardian of Person for the frail elderly living in a local health care facility. The elderly people in need have little or no financial resources, family, or other support system, and the Guardian of Person would fulfill the role of surrogate decision maker.

A volunteer guardian provides the opportunity to nurture, advocate for, and safeguard the well-being of another person in Ashtabula County, who otherwise would have no one in his or her life.

Orientation night is 5:30-7 p.m. Sept. 29 at Catholic Charities of Ashtabula County, 4200 Park Ave. (third floor of the First Merit Building). Light refreshments will be served.

To sign up or to find out more about this volunteer opportunity, contact Jeanne Myers at (440) 992-2121.

This is a chance for those victims in OH to get involved directly and help change the system.
