Standby Guardianship Project Clinic

Organization Description

The Project assists parents in:

  • Creating a safety plan for their family in case the parent is detained or deported or has a sudden health issue
  • Completing the Parental Designation and Consent to Beginning of Standby Guardianship form (the Form) which designates someone to legally care for the children in the event the parent is detained, deported or suddenly taken ill.

Free assistance is available by appointment. Currently appointments are by phone and zoom.
