The Guardianship Project is a demonstration project that provides essential services to people who a judge has determined to be unable to care for themselves and for whom there is no family or friend to fill the role. Its innovative model of support employs a team of professionals—from social workers to bookkeepers—who share responsibility for the incapacitated person's day-to-day personal care, housing arrangements, medical treatment, and legal and financial matters, regardless of the individual's ability to pay. Project staff help their clients—typically older adults or people with disabilities, many of whom are indigent—live healthier and happier lives by ensuring that, whenever possible, they remain in their homes and communities with supportive services and that they stay involved in decision making about their lives.

The Guardianship Project's funding is in jeopardy due to the budget crisis.
