Volunteers sought for guardian program


Stark County Probate Judge Dixie Park is seeking volunteers for the probate court's Guardian Visitor Program.

Guardian visitors serve as the court's eyes and ears visiting the wards under guardianship and those who serve as their guardians, a press release from Park said. Guardian visitors report on the well being of the wards.

By law, the probate court is responsible for overseeing cases of people who, due to serious physical or mental disabilities, need help in making decisions about their daily lives.

In Stark County there are about 1,700 ongoing guardianships, according to Park.

Volunteers will receive initial training and ongoing support from the court.

Anyone interested in volunteering as a guardian visitor, call 330-451-7752.
