GAL Program: Volunteers Protecting and Representing Our Youth
Sheriff Ric Bradshaw talks about the value of the GAL Program
The Florida Guardian ad Litem Program is a powerful and effective voice advocating for the best interests of Florida’s abused, abandoned, and neglected children. It is a recognized and respected partnership of community advocates and professional staff.
Many people ask how they can get involved. Hear about becoming a Guardian at Litem, and find how, with as little as five hours a month, you can make a lifelong impact on the life of a local foster child.
"I am For the Child"
Hundreds of local children in foster care need our help. If you aren't in the position to foster or adopt, there is still a way to make a lasting difference, through the Guardian ad Litem program.
Why Guardians ad Litem (GAL), also called Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), are so important in a child's life.
Guardian Ad Litem Southern Regional Director Kristen Solomon describes the GAL program to host Craig Stephens. The need for child advocates is greater than ever for children that are victims of abuse or neglect. The volunteers act as voices for kids that are moving through the court system.
