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.
The Statewide Guardian ad Litem Office is a state agency with a volunteer-powered network of everyday people committed to giving Florida's abused, neglected, and abandoned children a better chance for life. Our Guardian ad Litem Volunteers are everyday heroes from all walks of life who are part of a multi-disciplinary team that always includes a Guardian ad Litem Attorney and a child welfare professional. Together we can make a better future for Florida’s most vulnerable children.
