The Guardianship Advocacy Project (GAP) is one of Legal Aid Center’s newest programs and it represents the first time that proposed protected persons have been provided a voice, through counsel, in their guardianship cases. The GAP represents both adults and minors in guardianship proceedings and relies on pro bono volunteers to expand access to justice.
