Guardianship, Advocacy and Planning Services

후견, 옹호 및 계획 서비스

The Guardianship, Advocacy and Planning Services (GAPS) program was established in 1978 in response to parents’ concerns about who might support their child with I/DD when they were no longer able. Today, our GAPS team supports over 70 adults in 17 Oregon counties as legal guardian, health care representative, and/or advocate

Whatever our role, we treat everyone we support with dignity and respect, and encourage self-reliance and independence to the greatest extent possible. Utilizing legal guardianship only as a last resort, we strive to ensure a good life for people we support through team collaborationperson-centered planningsupported decision-making.
