Developing Pro-Bono Opportunities

Dec 30, 2010

Through the hard work of our Pro-bono Committee Chairperson, Kristin Mattes, and with the assistance of Attorney Jacqueline Majoros of Vermont Legal Aid, the VPO will have the opportunity to become involved with the Vermont Long Term Care Ombudsman Program.  At the annual meeting of the Vermont Probate Court Judges Association on December 3, 2010, the Probate Judges unanimously endorsed the proposed involvement of the VPO in long term care ombudsmanship as probate court designees under 18 V.S.A. §§ 9701(25) and 9702, subject to adequate support by means of a training, and perhaps certification, program.  The VPO will keep members advised as we move forward with this opportunity.
