The Guardian ad Litem program is a research-based, effective program of trained, competent, court-appointed community volunteers delivering greater efficiency in government systems, and significantly improved outcomes for the children that they serve.
We provide advocacy and support for abused, abandoned and neglected children in Pinellas and Pasco Counties. We envision a world where every child has a safe and permanent home and the opportunity to thrive.
Be a Hero To A Child
"Without my guardian, I would have been truly lost. He was a light in the darkness."- A.Q., former foster child
Children in the child welfare system deserve to be treated like any other child and should be able to participate in normal, age-appropriate activities. Fewer than 50% of children in the foster care system participate in extracurricular activities. In light of this plight, the Guardian ad Litem Foundation of Tampa Bay and Suncoast Voices for Children Foundation have partnered to address this problem.
