Community Involvement

Community Involvement is Parkside’s effort to go outside the walls of the church building and into the community. We desire to see the people who make up Parkside Church mobilized and involved in their communities for the sake of the gospel. Therefore, we want to hold or participate in events and make strategic partnerships in the communities where Parkside Church is represented by her members and attenders. These events and partnerships will provide opportunities to engage with individuals and the community at large in ways that promote the gospel.

The Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities currently recruiting Volunteer Guardians and we hope you will consider this essential volunteer opportunity.


    Volunteer Guardians make a real difference in someone’s life. A Volunteer Guardian is a trained, caring advocate and substitute decision maker. They serve as the legally-appointed guardian for an adult with a developmental disability and act in the best interest of the assigned person, serving as an advocate in the care and management of the person's medical and personal affairs.


    Volunteer Guardians are appointed by our county probate court. Cuyahoga DD's general counsel guides Volunteer Guardians every step of the way - - through the legal process, formal appointment and anytime there are questions. The person's support team of professionals and direct care provider(s) serve as partners to ensure the person reaches his/her goals.
