Purpose of the WINGS Public Guardianship Committee

A diverse group of persons with an interest in the delivery of public guardianship services will discuss and develop recommendations to transition the Washington State Office of Public Guardianship from a pilot program to a robust statewide program providing the decisional-support services needed by individuals with intellectual and cognitive disabilities.

Committee members will be asked to collect and review research and ideas; to consider current and future needs for decisional-support, and develop a plan to guide the Office of Public Guardianship now and in the future. The plan must include realistic, sustainable, growth-oriented funding mechanisms.WINGS
