Adult Guardianship Monitoring Volunteer Program

The Office of the Public Guardian, (OPG) operates the Guardianship Monitoring Program (GMP) for the Court of Chancery which is designed to monitor individuals who have been placed under guardianship and whose care is the responsibility of court-appointed guardians. These vulnerable individuals are adults over the age of eighteen that have been deemed incapacitated by the State of Delaware. A guardian is someone appointed by the court to make medical and/or financial decisions on behalf of these individuals. This important monitoring function enables the court to have first-hand information about people for whom the court has ultimate responsibility. As a volunteer for the GMP, you will be assigned a case, given necessary information about the case, visit with the ward and the guardian if necessary. After your visit, you will complete a report indicating the status of the person subject to guardianship and any other important information. Your report, once completed, should be checked for spelling, grammar and factual accuracy. Accuracy is important as your report will become part of official court record. Once reviewed, you will be then email your report to your contact at the OPG. The report will be viewed by the Guardianship Advocacy Director and then filed with the court. The wards of the Court of Chancery are very important and they deserve every right and protection we can provide them. As a volunteer you become the “eyes and ears” of the court and your participation in the Guardianship Monitoring Program is invaluable.

Read Aloud Delaware Community Service Day

Volunteers will gather on for Saturday April 27 from 9 – 1 AM to clean donated children’s books for Read Aloud Delaware. The community service event will be held in the Village of Five Points Community Center.Read Aloud Delaware’s mission is to ensure that each preschool child, 2 to 5 years of age, will be ready to learn to read when they enter kindergarten. In addition to reading one-on-one to children in child care centers, preschools, and some elementary schools, the program stocks Literacy Corners with children’s books in State Service Center waiting rooms throughout the county so that parents can read to their children while waiting-and the child can take a book home upon leaving. Stacy Penaranda, coordinator of the Read Aloud Delaware for Sussex County says, “Reading to children sets them on the road to literacy and a better life status. Children who are read to are: less likely to drop out of school; more likely to be employed as adults; and less likely to depend on public assistance. “ Boxes of books have been donated for the community service day. Volunteers will wipe the books with sanitizing cloths, erase marks inside the books or cover them with stickers and place a Read Aloud Delaware sticker on the book. Read Aloud’s Mother Goose who educates and entertains children in classrooms throughout the county will make an appearance at the booking cleaning. This is the second of four community service workshops hosted this year by the Villages of Five Points in their Community Center. “Welcoming Read Aloud Delaware to the Villages of Five Points is the “heart” of our vision to create spirit-enhancing programs for our residents and the community at large,” says Recreation Board Liaison Brenda Stover. For more information about the book cleaning, please contact Hilda Chaski Adams @ keepmailhca@gmail.com
