Social Agency Guardianship

By Leon D. Fisher, Marvin Najberg, David Soyer

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), September 1977

A change in the Florida statute allows a nonprofit corporation to assume guardianship of adjudicated incompetents. Prior to this, the indigent who could not care for himself rarely received the protection of a guardian. This paper deals with the development and experience of a family service agency in this protective service program for the aged. It is then discussed by a representative of a service-to-aged agency which has developed a conservatorship program in New York State. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.54 no.1, Fall 1977.
