The Law Firm of Rossway Moore Swan launches their annual holiday season of giving on Tuesday, December 4 from 11:30 a.m. until 1:15 p.m. as they host their yearly “Soup Bowl” held at their offices on Indian River Boulevard. The “Soup Bowl,” which benefits the Samaritan Center for Homeless Families is a 20 year tradition for the Center, and for Rossway Moore Swan, it marks their 4th year of hosting the event. The idea is that individuals forego their elaborate meal they would normally enjoy in place of a more simple meal of soup and bread, while donating what they saved on the meal to the Samaritan Center. The interfaith non-profit organization offers long-term transitional housing and guidance for homeless families of Indian River County and prepares them to live independently.Share
NDIAN RIVER COUNTY — A new nonprofit organization that will assist low-income residents in need of public guardians has been set up in Indian River County.
The Public Guardianship Program of Indian River County will provide a legal protector for low-income, incapacitated people who do not have family members or friends willing to serve as guardian. A public guardian is appointed by the court to oversee a person’s affairs if he or she is deemed to be incapable of making decisions on their own and the person has no assets.
Although in its infancy, the program already is helping four individuals in the county with decisions, including medical care, financial matters and placements in long-term care facilities, according to board members and attorneys Michael Swan and Thomas Tierney from Rossway Moore Taylor & Swan in Vero Beach, who are overseeing the cases pro bono.
“There are hundreds of legal guardianships in this county, and the vast majority goes to family and friends,” said Swan. “But these are the cases where there’s no family and friends, and there is no money to pay a private guardian.”Share
