Our Programs

Make My Ward's Day

The Broward County Guardianship Association wants to grant wishes for Wards that may not otherwise be able to afford! A wish come true can improve the quality of a Ward's life in ways we cannot begin to imagine. BCGA has set aside funds to be used to make as many wishes as possible come true for the indigent Wards of Broward County. To ensure that those funds are stretched even further, Alternative Home Health Care is donating 40 hours of home health care aides to accompany the Wards on their adventures as needed.

Maybe your Ward wants to go to a Heat, Dolphin, or Panther game. Maybe they want to dine at one of the finest restaurants in the tri-county area. Perhaps it's dinner and a movie, or a fancy new outfit. Whatever their wish is, we want to help!

So take a few minutes, tell us about your Ward, what would "Make their Day" and why their wish should be granted. We will do the rest. Our goal to " Make" as many "Days" as possible, but we need your help. Complete the form below and return it to our board: 2400 E. Commercial Boulevard, Suite 720, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308, or BCGA2400@gmail.com

Gift Card Program

Originally begun to provide holiday bags to our indigent wards, this program was expanded to offer guardians gift cards to provide for their wards’ individual wants and needs throughout the year. Any guardian with an indigent ward can complete a one page form and be given a gift card to be used for anything for their ward, just on a smaller scale than our “Make My Ward’s Day” program. Budget permitting, there is no limit and our goal is to continue to offer as part of the BCGA budget.

Pro Bono Wheel Program

As part of the mission of the Broward County Guardianship Association, we want to support those professional guardians who have volunteered to accept pro bono cases in Broward County through Judge Charles Greene’s pro bono guardianship wheel. We understand how critical it is for indigent wards of Broward County to have professional guardians. We have therefore allocated funds to create a special grant to help support those guardians who have volunteered for this special program.

To qualify for this grant, you must be a professional guardian, have registered on Judge Greene’s pro bono wheel, and have been assigned a pro bono case from this wheel.

Applications will be reviewed quarterly with submissions due January 15th, April 15th, July 15th, and October 15th of each year. For example, if you serve as a pro bono guardian from January through March, you would submit your application on April 15th. To be considered for the grant you must resubmit your request each quarter and certify that there were no assets allocated to pay for your guardian fees. This program will be reevaluated on an annual basis, based upon availability of funds.

If you believe you currently meet the criteria or if you are selected for a future case, please complete the application below and send to BCGA2400@gmail.com.
