SAFE, or Special Advocates For Elderly of Douglas County is starting training for new volunteers, men and women who want to help the community’s most vulnerable adults who are involved in the court system. When adults are facing guardianship because they can no longer care or speak for themselves, SAFE can act as their voice in court. Volunteers take time to learn about the person, their family, their situation and then make recommendations to the judge about what is best for their future. Training is once a week for five weeks. Each training session is 2-2.5 hours. Training session dates are 9/16, 9/23, 9/30, 10/7, 10/14 from 4:00pm to 6:30pm. If you are over the age of 21 and have some time to commit to volunteering, contact Leanne Wagoner, Court Advocacy Programs Manager, at 775-782-6247.
