Congratulations Nicole Warren - Elder Affairs Professional Guardian

Congratulations to Nicole Warren, Elder Affairs Case Manager, who successfully passed the state of Florida public and professional guardian exam.  We are proud to have her serving elderly clients in need with the esteemed professional guardian status.  

Since 1978 Catholic Charities Elder Affairs Program has been providing comprehensive guardianship and case management services to the elderly in our community. Many elderly are without support and are unable to manage their personal affairs, leaving them vulnerable to exploitation, abuse, and neglect.  Many lack the financial resources to provide for the necessities of living. It is the goal of the program to deliver services that deal with the realities of human suffering and to advocate justice for the elderly person burdened by poverty and the effects of societal indifference.

Through guardianship and case management services, the program can provide vital services to the most vulnerable and needy in our community. This multidimensional program provides comprehensive guardianship and case management services and linkage to community support for individuals 65 years of age and older, residing in Palm Beach County who are at risk physically, mentally, emotionally, financially and/or spiritually.
