Statewide Public Guardianship Office (SPGO)

Who We Are

The Statewide Public Guardianship Office, 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. The Statewide Public Guardianship Office can be reached by calling (850) 414-2381 or by email at spgoinfo@elderaffairs.org.

Our Mission

To foster an environment that promises well-being for Florida’s elders and enables them to remain in their homes and communities.
