Retired and looking for a new adventure? There are children who need your help!

Become a Volunteer Child Advocate with The Guardian ad Litem Program. Use your time and experience to make a difference in the life of a child in need. Our program's volunteers work with children who have experienced abuse and neglect and ensure their interests are heard and served in the community and the court. Through our volunteers' efforts, our children are able to find a permanent, safe home as soon as possible. They are also able to see that there are choices and paths for a successful future. Our volunteers, working with an advocacy team, spend 8 to 10 hours a month volunteering with our program. By dedicating themselves to these children, we are changing children's lives and our community.
