Visit the Jackson Branch of the Ocean County Library on Friday, January 29, 2016 at 2:00 pm to learn about becoming a volunteer for the New Jersey Judiciary Guardianship Monitoring Program.
Volunteers in Ocean County are needed to help ensure that incapacitated adults under court authorized guardianships are treated with dignity and respect. Volunteers for the New Jersey Judiciary Guardianship Monitoring Program (GMP) are vital to achieving court oversight and protection of incapacitated adults, while also assisting guardians in their sometimes difficult role.
The GMP is a comprehensive statewide volunteer-based court program established to monitor guardians in their handling of the affairs of incapacitated individuals. The goal of the GMP is to safeguard and reduce the potential for abuse and exploitation of incapacitated individuals by their guardians. Supreme Court Chief Justice Stuart Rabner announced the program in January 2013, saying, “We need a host of volunteers to help ensure that individuals who cannot take care of themselves are not taken advantage of by others. Please step forward to help us achieve that noble aim.”
This information session is free and open to the public. Registration is required. Call for details and to register 732-928-4400 or visit the Ocean County Library’s website and register online www.theoceancountylibrary.org.
