About Big Bend Guardian

Who We Are

The Big Bend Chapter is a chapter of the Florida State Guardianship Association (FSGA), a nonprofit corporation founded in 1983 for the improvement of guardianship services in Florida.

Governed by a Board of Directors representing eight geographical areas of the state, FSGA is dedicated to promoting the protection, dignity and rights of incapacitated persons. FSGA focuses on furthering the professionalism of guardians through education, networking and legislative action. All members subscribe to the organization’s Code of Ethics.

The Big Bend Chapter welcomes members from Leon and surrounding counties. Chapter members include professional guardians, family/volunteer guardians and affiliated memberships including attorneys, health care providers, facility administrators and others concerned with guardianship. All chapter members are required to be members of FSGA.

Any of our chapter members will be happy to talk with you about your guardianship questions and concerns, and will refer you to the right person if they can’t answer your questions.
