About

I am for the child who now 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 consider becoming a Guardian ad Litem Volunteer and make a difference in the life of a child! The Guardian ad Litem Program provides a comprehensive training course for new Volunteers, that includes 3 Phases. Phase #1 is the pre-classroom independent study, Phase #2 is 15 hours of classroom instruction and Phase #3 is field work with an expereinced Guardian ad Litem as a mentor. Training classes are held monthly- Learn more at our website www.galtampa.org.
