MAKE EXCEPTIONAL USE OF YOUR TIME WHILE SOCIAL DISTANCING!
DURING THIS TIME ALL TRAINING IS ONLINE!


Guardian ad Litem
Volunteers advocate for children in the foster care / dependency system. Children who have been removed from their home because of abandonment, abuse or neglect through no fault of their own need someone to care about their best interest and will speak on their behalf.

As a volunteer you meet with a child at least 1x per month and be that special person who advocates for their best interest. We provide all training and a background screen. During this time of social distancing all meetings and trainings are virtual. Volunteers are taking this time when they can't do their normal routine to do online training.

If you are ever watching the news or scrolling through social media and wonder what you can do to help make a difference - THIS IS IT! You can make a difference in a child's life with as little as 8 hours per month.

Be the person who makes a difference in a child's life!

We are looking forward to hearing from you.
