MAKING DECISIONS. ENHANCING LIVES.
Adult Guardianship Services (AGS) of Cuyahoga County and Volunteer Guardianship Program (VGP) of Lorain County provide legal guardians to serve as concerned caring advocates and surrogate decision-makers for indigent, incompetent adults who cannot care for themselves and have often encountered abuse or exploitation. Guardians look after the emotional, social, financial and physical well-being of these vulnerable adults and advocate for the least restrictive living environment possible. They often make end-of-life decisions as well as funeral arrangements.. Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry has provided adult guardianship services in Northeast Ohio for more than 25 years, and our programs are sole providers of guardianships to indigent persons in the respective counties served.
