Organization helps legally incapacitated adults
A group of volunteers have come together to help those in need.
The Idaho County Board of Community Guardians (BOCG) are people who are working together to provide legal guardianship for adult residents of Idaho County who have been deemed legally incapacitated by the court, have limited funds and no family members or friends who can assist them.
BOCG is currently seeking new volunteer board members. These people must be at least 18 years old to apply. See forms on the website http://idahocounty.org/commissioners/board-of-community-guardians or pick up an application from the Idaho County Clerk’s office. Completed applications need to be returned to the same location and will be submitted to the Idaho County Commissioners for consideration.
Referrals for potential wards can be made by completing a form found on the web site or an application may be picked up in the clerk’s office.
Current board members are: Chair-Ann Hoene; Vice-chair-Klarey Ewing; secretary/treasurer-Tara Nida; members Larry Clark, Darlene Clark, Chris Hagenbuch, Tammy Everson and board representative Idaho County Prosecuting Attorney Kirk MacGregor.
