ORGANIZATION: Guardian Ad Litem Program - 5th Judicial Circuit - Marion County

  • 5 people are interested

The mission of the 5th Circuit Florida GAL program is to support and promote court-appointed volunteer advocacy in Lake, Sumter, Hernando, Citrus, and Marion counties to ensure that every abused and neglected child can be safe and establish permanence.

As a Child Advocate volunteer, you will help make a profound difference in the lives of young children that have been abused, abandoned or neglected. As a specially trained and certified advocate, you are appointed by a judge to fight for each child's rights and ensure that they are well cared for and able to have a safe, loving and permanent home.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound and tragic impact on our society, which has fundamentally altered our societal norms and professional practices. The Guardian ad Litem program continues to advocate for children that have been abused, abandoned and neglected. COViD19 and social distancing recommendations have changed the way we serve our children, but hasn't affect the passion of our advocacy. Information sessions, interviews, training and court hearings are mainly being conducted virtually to follow CDC guidelines. We are focused on keeping our volunteers, children and our community healthy by adapting to the new normal.
