Volunteer Guardian Program

Lifeline, in partnership with the Lake County Probate Court, offers support and education to volunteer guardians.  The Volunteer Guardian Program (VGP) works with volunteers who address the individual health and safety needs of Lake County’s most vulnerable populations.  Volunteers are offered opportunities to network, receive ongoing training and personalized support while working on behalf of the elderly, developmentally disabled and those struggling with mental illness.  Volunteer guardians play a vital role in the health and safety of community members who need the support of a caring person who is able to advocate for their needs. Our experienced staff are available to volunteers during each step of the process from orientation, training and ongoing ward needs.   If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please contact the VGP staff at 440-350-2234 or guardian@lclifeline.org.
