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.

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, visitations and court hearings are mainly being conducted virtually to follow CDC guidelines. As we work on fully reopening our offices we are focused on keeping our volunteers, children and our community healthy by adapting to the new normal. Become a volunteer today!
