Office of Public & Professional Guardians (OPPG)

Who We Are

Office of Public & Professional Guardians, housed within the Department of Elder Affairs, appoints local public guardian offices as directed by statute to provide guardianship services to persons who do not have adequate income or assets to afford a private guardian and there is no willing family or friend to serve. The office, which contracts with 17 local Offices of Public Guardianship throughout Florida, is also responsible for the registration and education of professional guardians. Office of Public & Professional Guardians can be reached by calling (850) 414-2381 or by email at OPPGinfo@elderaffairs.org.
