Children need advocacy

-A A +A

 Every child deserves a chance at a bright future that holds the hope of a stable, nurturing family.  Children taken away from their parents due to neglect and abuse often lose that hope and are lost in a sea of social workers, attorneys, therapists, and caregivers.  A Guardian ad Litem volunteer is a lifeline for them, someone whose attention is focused on that child and what is in their best interest.

A guardian volunteer monitors, investigates and reports their recommendations to the court – always with the best interest of the child in mind.   They support the child’s needs by being their spokesperson and assuring the child does not get lost in the system.

By advocating for children’s best interest in the court system, Guardian ad Litem volunteers can be the difference between success and failure in a child’s life. 

It takes about 6-12 hours of your time per month to change a child’s life forever.  Training, legal, and staff support are provided.
