Community Connection: Wall Opportunities and Wishes (WoW)

Wall Opportunities and Wishes, also known as WOW, was recently awarded a grant from the Greater Lynchburg Community Foundation to help adults with disabilities who need financial assistance for guardianship proceedings. 

Often times, the State will fund a Guardian Ad Litem – an attorney who represents the individual in court – but there are still costs for the petitioning attorney and court filing fees that someone with limited income may not be able to afford. Guardians are especially important when a person has no relatives to provide informed consent for services and necessary medical procedures. 

If you know an adult with a developmental or mental health disability who could use help with their guardianship costs, you can email wownonprofit@gmail.com or call (434) 660-0958.

Culture Connection: October 2nd – October 8th
