Description

The mission of the Kansas Guardianship Program (KGP) is to recruit and train volunteers to serve as court-appointed guardians and conservators for disabled adults who are found by courts to need the protection of guardianship and conservatorship. The 1995 Kansas Legislature established the program as a separate public instrumentality pursuant to K.S.A. 74-9601 et seq., as amended. The agency is governed by a seven-member board. Six members of the board are appointed by the Governor and one by the Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court. One of the gubernatorially-appointed members is a volunteer in the Kansas Guardianship Program. The board hires an executive director to oversee operation of the agency. The Kansas Guardianship Program is a quasi-state agency financed by the State General Fund.
