Map Location Guardianship, Advocacy and Alternative Options Program


Provides advocacy services on behalf of more than 130 individuals with intellectual disability and/or developmental disabilities living throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Through this program, the organization provides legal guardianship for people who require additional levels of assistance, advocacy, and protections to assure that their desires, wishes and needs are respected, addressed, and met. The organization’s guardianship services are based upon seeking the least restrictive level of guardianship to ensure that the person served retains as much personal control as possible. The Guardianship Program provides both permanent and temporary guardianship services, ranging from partial guardianship (i.e. medical, financial, Roger’s Monitoring, etc) to full permanent guardianship.
