Elder Advocate New Volunteer Training Offered

Minden, Nev.  – Special Advocates for Elderly (SAFE) of Douglas County is starting a training for new volunteers beginning in September. SAFE volunteers are men and women who want to help our community’s most vulnerable adults who are involved in the court system.

When adults do not have a voice of their own, SAFE can act as that voice. Volunteers take time to learn about the person, their family, their situation and then make a recommendation to the Judge about what is best for their future.

The training occurs once per week, for five weeks.

If you are over the age of 21, care about the dignity for older adults, and have some time to commit to volunteering, contact us today.

You can learn more about SAFE by going to Douglas County’s website  and clicking on Court Advocacy Programs, or by calling Leanne Wagoner, the Manager of Court Advocacy at 775-782-6247.
