About

Children who have a Guardian ad Litem spend less time in foster care, do better academically and have a consistent adult figure in their life.

Hillsborough County
leads the state of Florida in the number of children in care! Won't you join us and say I am for the child who stands in the entryway of a group foster home, clutching a makeshift suitcase, a garbage bag filled with everything he owns. I am for the child who has had seven addresses in a single year, because she is in foster care. These are the children I am for. And because I am, they will be half as likely to languish in foster care, and that much more likely to find a safe, permanent home. I am a volunteer Child Advocate. I am just like you! There are currently almost 1800 children in Hillsborough County who need a Guardian ad Litem.

Please join us for our weekly Information Sessions which are held each Thursday evening at 6:00, the 2nd and 4th Thursday sessions take place at the GAL Office, 700 E. Twiggs Street, Ste. 750, Tampa 33602. Please check our website (www.galtampa.org) to confirm Information Session locations.

Please consider becoming a Guardian ad Litem Volunteer and make a difference in the life of a child! Training classes are held monthly- call 813-272-5110
