Mission Statement

The Guardian Ad Litem is the "voice of the child". The term Guardian Ad Litem means "guardian for the case". Therefore, a GAL is not a foster parent, legal guardian, or expected to provide a home for the child. A Guardian Ad Litem is paired with an attorney and Advocate Coordinator to make recommendations to the judge regarding a safe place or special services. You can champion an abused or neglected child and prevent them from suffering future harm.

Description

The volunteer Guardian Ad Litem is a representative for the child before the court, social service agencies and the community. He/she also protects the child during the family crisis, court proceedings, and follows the child’s progress after the Court disposes of the case.
