Adult Guardianship Project

Organization: Atlanta Legal Aid Society, Inc.


By helping caretakers establish guardianship over adults who have a medical condition that renders them unable to make decisions about their health and safety, volunteers ensure the caretaker's ability to apply for benefits, oversee the ward's medical care, and provide continuity of care for the ward.
