The Guardian ad Litem Foundation raises the funds necessary to recruit and train volunteer advocates to represent the best interests of children who have been removed from their homes because of abuse and neglect. These dedicated volunteers become the “voice” for these children in court, their schools, the case management system, and with other community agencies until a safe and permanent living arrangement can be achieved. Each case typically takes from one to three years to close. We currently have over 2000 children in the dependency system and just over 535 Southwest Florida residents serving as volunteer advocates. Nearly 430 children need Guardian ad Litem care in Charlotte County!
The Foundation also provides these children items and experiences not funded by any other source…critical items such as a bed and bedding, school clothes, sports participation, tutoring, birthday celebrations…all things that help them fit in and feel more like their same-aged peers.
On behalf of Southwest Florida’s abused, neglected and abandoned children, you are invited to JOIN US in achieving our goal of matching EVERY child in the court dependency system with a Guardian ad Litem Volunteer Advocate to serve as their voice in the courts and community!
My kids' caretaker (their grandmother) and I want to thank you so much for the generous gift certificates you've given her for her grandkids clothes. They came to her home with little more than the clothes on their backs and she was headed today to get them clothes to surprise them when they get home from school! You are wonderful!!!!!!View all
