PROTECTING OUR VULNERABLE ADULTS
Mid Ohio Guardianship Services, Inc. (MOGSI) is a non-profit volunteer-based Guardianship Program that serves the 21 and over who have been deemed incompetent by the Richland County Probate Court. The clients suffer from dementia, mental health issues and/or are developmentally disabled. These folks have no family, no appropriate family, or in some cases, it is beneficiary to have an outside party be the Guardian due to family dynamics. We are Guardian of Person only, the Guardians see to their clients medical and placement decisions and they advocate for their safety, well being and are their voice.
When a person has and needs a Guardian the community benefits by having an advocate to see to proper medical decisions being made and seeing that there is appropriate housing. With the growing need for knowledgeable and accessible Volunteer Guardians, we are meeting that demand!
The client's quality of life becomes immeasurably more positive! The role and responsibility of the Guardian is to act in the best interest of their clients and to have them in the least restrictive environment.
I am the Director, and the only associate of Mid Ohio Guardianship Services, Inc., relying on the assistance and expertise of numerous volunteers. I carry a caseload and presently oversee fifteen Volunteer Guardians that serve twenty-five individuals and that need continues to grow.
Please consider donating to our non-profit so that we may continue the good works of advocating for those vulnerable adults.
Thank you for your consideration.
