Mission Statement

Children in the Guardian ad Litem Program have been removed from their families and home by no fault of their own. The Guardian ad Litem Program exists to ensure a qualified and caring adult is there to ensure that children’s rights are protected at one of the most vulnerable times in their lives. They serve as their voice in court and advocates exclusively for the best interest of the child.

Description

Domestic violence, substance abuse and mental health issues are some of the reasons there are so many children who have been taken from their parents and placed into the foster care system or in group homes. There are currently over 1100 abused, neglected or abandoned children in Pasco County alone in the foster care system. Over half of these children are still waiting for someone to be their voice. That someone is a Guardian ad Litem volunteer whose mission is to speak up for a child’s best interest in court. Research shows that children who have a Guardian, spend less time in foster care and have a much better chance of being reunited with their parents or getting adopted than those who do not.
