Charlotte resident Tylor Freeman said now that he’s out from under guardianship, he’s looking forward to living where he wants. His guardian for eight years came from a company that gets paid for each guardian they manage. After that, his guardianship was transferred to The Arc of North Carolina, and his guardians there informed him of his rights and helped him transition away from being under a guardianship regimen. “They made sure that I was informed of my rights. You know, I never knew I could have a trial by jury. Or I never knew that I could ask for an appeal. Because we would go to court, and nobody would tell me these things,” he said. Credit: Rose Hoban
