Welcome to South Florida Guardianship Program, INC.
South Florida Guardianship Program (SFGP) was created in 1991 to provide quality professional guardianship services for all in need. SFGP is a private, non profit organization that serves as a full service corporate guardian.
A Guardian is by law entrusted with the care of a person, property or both. SFGP understands that this is one of the most important assignments that can be bestowed upon a person.
The duties of a Guardian are prescribed by the laws of the State of Florida and by the rules established by the Supreme Court of Florida.
SFGP can serve as a Court Appointed Guardian of the person or property or both for an incompetent individual. We can serve as a Court Appointed Guardian of the property for a competent individual also known as a Voluntary Guardianship.
SFGP can serve as a Court Appointed Guardian of the property for a minor who has received an inheritance, proceeds of a lawsuit or insurance policy.
SFGP works with people who have a disabling condition. This includes people with conditions related to the aging process, people with a mental illness, people with developmental disability, people who have had a traumatic brain injury, or people with a physical handicap. Some of our clients have very minor or no disabilities who have chosen to make use of a voluntary guardianship, trust or other arrangements.
Our qualified professional staff collectively has expertise in law, financial management, social work, health care and community services. Using a team approach, our staff can monitor and supervise 24 hours a day, seven days a week to meet the unique needs of each individual client.
When Guardianship is not necessary, families feel comfortable with their loved ones receiving expert case management from SFGP.
SFGP is licensed, insured and fully bonded. We serve clients in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties.
SFGP is registered with Department of Elder Affairs, Statewide Public Guardianship office.
OUR MISSION: SFGP is committed to providing services to those in need and we hold our work to the highest professional standards. Our services are designed to optimize the welfare and dignity of each individual client. We work within the authority we are given to protect our clients and to include our clients and their families as much as possible in decision making.
