Volunteer Guardianship Program

Volunteer Guardianship

Due to an increasing number of Ottawa County residents in need of a guardian without a suitable person to act in this capacity, former Ottawa County Probate Court Kathleen L. Giesler developed a Volunteer Guardian Program to serve incompetent adults in need.  In 2013, the court reached out to Ottawa County agencies, Wood County Probate Court and other facilities throughout the county and state to help facilitate its own court-based volunteer guardian program.  With the assistance of a number of helpful and informed individuals, this program was formed.
