The Arc of Yates provides guardianship services to individuals who have no family or natural supports to act as guardian. Services are provided directly though the Arc of Yates Guardianship Committee. 

The Arc of Yates guardianship committee is a group of volunteers who have an interest in supporting people in need of guardianship. Many committee members are legal guardians for their own family member. In addition to personal experience, members may have an area of proficiency that assists the committee with decision making. Medical, legal, and spiritual expertise are some areas that enable the committee to make informed decisions in the best interest of the individual. 

Committee members regularly visit each person for whom the Chapter provides primary guardianship to learn his or her personal wishes, preferences, beliefs and needs. The committee keeps these at the forefront when advocating for and making decisions that are in the best interest of the individual. Whenever possible the individual is involved in the decision making process. 

The Arc of Yates can also provide support and assistance to family members who may be considering guardianship for a loved one. 

If you are interested in learning more about the Arc of Yates Guardianship Committee, or would like further information about guardianship in general, please contact Priscilla Jakupca, Guardianship Coordinator at (315) 536–7447 or pjakupca@arcofyates.org.
