Volunteer to help a child in Palm Beach County today!
The Florida Guardian ad Litem (GAL) Program is a partnership of community advocates and professional staff providing a powerful voice on behalf of Florida's abused and neglected children. Become a vital part of the advocacy team and discover how you can make a difference in a child's life.
GAL is central to fulfilling society’s most fundamental obligation by making sure a qualified, compassionate adultwill fight for and protect a child’s basic human right to be safe, to be treated with dignity and respect, and to learn and grow in the safe embrace of a loving family.
Guardian ad Litem Volunteers (GALs) are trained, court-appointed advocates for children who have been abused, abandoned, or neglected.
As of December 2013, there are over 1700 children in Palm Beach County involved in the dependency system with hundreds who still need a volunteer to Speak Up! for their best interests, to ensure they are safe and that services and needed care are provided, so that they can learn and grow in a healthy, caring environment.
