Mission Statement

Mission: To provide the most vulnerable children in Florida with an adult from their community who will be a consistent, positive presence in the child’s life as part of a multi-disciplinary team that includes an attorney, child welfare professional and hopefully a community volunteer providing the highest quality community advocacy and legal representation to protect each child’s legal interests. To provide dependency judges with thorough and accurate information regarding the children under the court’s jurisdiction.

Description

The Florida Statewide Guardian ad Litem Office represents abused, abandoned and neglected children in the courtroom and the community. Through the collaboration of a multi-disciplinary team that includes a Guardian ad Litem Attorney, child welfare professional, and hopefully a trained volunteer, our team provides quality legal representation for the best interests of abused, neglected, and abandoned children while assisting the child in expressing their needs and wishes. Our unique approach allows us to support the whole child, addressing their physical, educational, mental, emotional, social, and legal needs.

The Statewide Guardian ad Litem Office is a Guardianship type of legal representation. In Florida, we recognize that children cannot make decisions for themselves that involve their health and safety. Guardians ad Litem must provide all information to the judge about the child and advocate for what is in the child’s best interest.

Guardians ad Litem become people our children can trust, helping us be their voice. As a team together, we provide powerful, effective, high-quality advocacy with one goal: that every child finds a safe, loving, permanent home where they can thrive.

You can be a part of Florida’s award-winning, state-funded child advocacy organization and make a difference in a child’s life. Learn more about how you can become a child advocate or support the Florida Guardian ad Litem Foundation, which provides support and additional resources for Florida Guardian ad Litem and the families we serve.

My husband had ALS, first symptom was weakness in his fingers, one day, we had a dream life with early retirement and then, when we went to find out about the weakness, our whole world almost changed. There are so many things that can be said about the suffering and frustration of people with ALS, we look back now and realize in many ways how lucky we were to found Dr. Timothy herbal cure that was able to get rid of my husband ALS disease totally, we had time to enjoy life and above all we all had time to also share this great testimony , many people lose loved ones without closure. I can’t imagine going thru all that you or your family had to live with daily, do not hesitate to contact https://5dc41d5b6d60d.site123.me or email goodhealthherbalfoundation@yahoo... for ALS cure.

Am here to appreciate Dr.Timothy for using his herbal medicine to cure my Herpes virus. since 2016 i have been living with this virus and it has been giving me challenges, I was so perplexed cause i have been taking several drugs to be cured but all of my effort was in vain, one evening i was browsing through the internet then i saw several testimonies about Dr.Timothy curing people from Herpes virus and immediately i contacted his email address i told him about my sickness and he told me that i will be cured within 2 weeks he gave me some instructions and which i rightly followed. so he prepared a herbal medicine for me and sent it to me which i used for 2 weeks and everything was like a dream to me and my Herpes virus was totally gone why don't you contact Dr.Timothy he is very good and honest. contact him via email address; goodhealthherbalfoundation@yahoo.com OR website https://5dc41d5b6d60d.site123.me
