About Us


Our vision is a world in which all guardians are trained and supported to be the best possible advocates for people with a guardian.  We strive to make research accessible to those serving as guardians through fact sheets, infographics, and decision-making tools. We believe the Center’s work will lead to high-quality support for people subject to guardianship.

The Center for Guardianship Excellence recognizes and appreciates the importance of creating an environment in which all individuals and families feel valued, included, and empowered. The Center recognizes that each individual’s unique experiences, perspectives, and viewpoints add value to our ability to create and deliver the best possible research and education to the community. With the full understanding that our individual race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, physical abilities, intellectual abilities, age, socioeconomic status, political beliefs, religious beliefs, and ideologies shape and influence our experiences and perspectives, The Center will promote diversity, equity, and inclusion for all.

The mission of Guardian Community Trust is to support the quality of life for vulnerable elderly and disabled persons in Massachusetts, especially those who suffer isolation, incapacity, and/or indigence, by forming creative partnerships with public and private stakeholders at every level. The vision is to create a strong and stable private agency to continue providing essential trustee services to the elderly and disabled, and to establish a permanent endowment for public guardianship to protect the most indigent and isolated individuals in need of decisional support.
