In 1990 Friends for Life was asked to serve as legal guardian for a man who had been found unconscious. He was unable to make medical decisions and he had no family who could intervene on his behalf.
Friends for Life now offers guardianship service in 81 Texas counties. We serve as guardian when the judge determines a person lacks decisional capacity and there is no family member qualified and willing to serve.
If you are aware of an individual who might be in need of guardianship in one of the counties listed below, please contact Micki Bowman at firstname.lastname@example.org She will help you with the process.
