WINGS - Working Interdisciplinary Networks of Guardianship Stakeholders

Welcome to the Alaska Court System WINGS page. This page will serve as a way to provide information and updates on the Alaskan WINGS program.

PURPOSE

WINGS, which stands for Working Interdisciplinary Networks of Guardianship Stakeholders, is the result of a national effort begun in 2011 when the National Guardianship Network recommended changes including that individual states create coordinated state court-community partnerships. Broad based, collaborative working groups can drive changes that will affect the ways courts and guardians practice and improve the lives of people who have or may need guardians. In short, WINGS is a collective effort to improve adult guardianship in the State of Alaska.

STRUCTURE

At this time, the Steering Committee for WINGS includes the Alaska Court System, Office of Public Advocacy, Governor’s Council on Disabilities and Special Education, Alaska State Association for Guardianship & Advocacy(ASAGA), Office of the Long-Term Care Ombudsman and the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority. See the list of stakeholder entities participating thus far.
