Giving Back

Big Bend Office of the Public Guardian

The Office of Public Guardian, Inc., (OPG) serves adults with mental and/or physical disabilities as their court-appointed legal guardian when they are incapable of managing some or all of their affairs. The Office of Public Guardian, Inc., was established to act as a substitute decision-maker for those persons in the Big Bend Area who are functionally impaired to the extent that they require the protection of court intervention. The OPG provides quality public assistance in the form of guardianship services to vulnerable adults adjudicated incapacitated who have no family, friends, or resources to obtain a private guardian.  HGS supports OPG through participation and financial sponsorship of its activities, including the annual True Colors Benefit Dinner celebrating OPG’s work and the work of others that support the people served by OPG.
