Guardianship abuse has reached the level of a national epidemic. Those whose family members have been abused by a guardian quickly find that there is often no legal redress. The Guardianship Shield program is designed to actívate a national network of human rights members who will take constructive action to protect the vulnerable person.

The Guardianship Shield  is a proactive, grassroots program which issues human rights alerts concerning individuals at risk for problematic or coercive guardianship practices.  These alerts go out to all the GS members and to human rights groups. The GS members agree to contact the parties and institutions involved in initiating the actions in question and advise these parties of their concerns.  The GS members also agree to contact local media in an effort to raise public awareness of specific incidents of guardianship abuse.
