Guardian ad Litem Program - Lake County

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 15 people are interested

The Florida Guardian ad Litem Program advocates for children who have experienced abuse, neglect or abandonment and find themselves in State Child Protective Services. Through our heartfelt child advocacy, we help these children reach a safe and permanent place that they can call home. We are people from all backgrounds, who make a commitment to advocating for children. Through our advocacy, we change the lives of children and make positive impacts in our communities. In the process, our own lives are changed for the better. When children are removed from households that lack safety and care, they are placed in State Child Protective Services. The Guardian ad Litem Program is appointed by the courts to advocate on behalf of the children’s needs and best interests, so they get the support and services needed to change their lives.
Together with our Attorneys, professional Child Advocate Managers, and our trained and certified Volunteers, we advocate for each child so they can receive the services needed to thrive physically, emotionally, academically and socially. Our Program is in every county throughout Florida, representing and advocating for the children we serve. We love seeing our impact in the lives of the children. Together we help change the lives of children so they become resilient and continue to succeed. By doing this, we build stronger families and communities. Today you can start the rewarding journey of becoming a Child Advocate and join the Florida Guardian ad Litem Program. Imagine the difference you can make in a child’s life, and in your own.
