Fargo guardian service closes doors

We are part of The Trust Project.

FARGO – Guardian Fiduciary & Advocacy Services of Fargo, a nonprofit organization that provided guardianship and conservatorship services to vulnerable adults in the Fargo-Moorhead area for 15 years, has closed.

The organization made the announcement via a written statement.

In the statement, the organization's board of directors cited several reasons for the move, including rising operating costs, dramatically increasing insurance and bond requirements and difficulty in finding and keeping staff.

"This is a simple case of current and future expenses exceeding income," the statement said.

I'm a reporter and a photographer and sometimes I create videos to go with my stories.

I graduated from Minnesota State University Moorhead and in my time with The Forum I have covered a number of beats, from cops and courts to business and education.

I've also written about UFOs, ghosts, dinosaur bones and the planet Pluto.

There’s room for two up front and theoretically two in back. But the rear seat is better suited as a padded parcel shelf; this baby has a mere 3.4 cubic feet of trunk space."
