Fresno County Public Guardian information provided by: Fresno County Department of Behavioral Health

The Public Guardian exists to protect and care for those in our community who are unable to care for themselves or manage their finances and have no one else to assist them. The Public Guardian's Office conducts official investigations into the need for conservatorship for adults in Fresno County and if no viable alternatives to a public conservatorship exist files petitions with the court asking to be appointed as conservator. If the Superior Court determines a conservatorship needs to be established, the Public Guardian is appointed as conservator of either the person, estate, or both. The Public Guardian then makes decisions regarding care while attempting to preserve the autonomy, dignity and independence of the individual placed on conservatorship. If you believe someone you know requires the appointment of the Public Guardian or if you have further questions, please refer to our webpage for more information and resources.
