Guardian ad Litem Program

GuardianadLitemlogoEach year more than 1,700 abused and neglected children are assigned by a judge to a trained Guardian ad Litem (GAL), and according to Laura Davis, finding enough volunteers is no easy task.  Listen as the Community Outreach and Volunteer Recruiter for GAL talks about how anyone over age 21 can become a Guardian ad Litem and help fill this tremendous void in our community.   Laura says finding men is the toughest aspect of her job, but that all types of people are needed – people who care about children.  Giving back in this way, however, comes easy to volunteer board members Amy Goldin and Louis Berlin.  Listen as they explain their own experiences and ability to find the time necessary to help these children.  Not only do they give of their time to help kids, they formed a chapter of Voices of Children to help raise funds for the program and the children.  Since government agencies can’t raise money, this charitable arm enables these volunteers to solicit donations for such items as uniforms, medical equipment or food for the children and support for volunteers.  For information on how to become a guardian or to simply provide financial support, call (954) 831-6214 or visit their web site here.
