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 advocate for and support children, young adults, and families impacted by abuse and neglect in Pinellas and Pasco Counties by collaborating with community partners and the Guardian ad Litem staff and volunteers who support the children we serve.
