Statewide Public Guardianship Office (SPGO)

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. SPGO is also responsible for the registration of Professional Guardians.

For more information, please call SPGO at 850-414-2381 or by email at SpgoInfo@elderaffairs.
. To speak with a Public Guardian in your area, you may contact any of the local offices of public guardian throughout Florida. You may also contact the Elder Helpline in your area by calling 1-800-963-5337.
