Thanks to the Guardian Ad Litem Program, recruiting, training, and supporting GAL volunteers, our community has the solution for a brighter, more hopeful future which will dramatically, positively impact the lives of abused, abandoned and neglected children in Palm Beach County.
The difference a GAL volunteer makes
A child with a GAL is...
More likely to be adopted.
1/2 as likely to re-enter foster care.
More likely to find a safe and permanent home.
More apt to receive the appropriate physical, educational and emotional care they need through available child services.
GAL Volunteer Child Advocates
Child Victims of Abuse or Neglect
HOPE for the FUTURE
The power of advocacy is real and measurable. Children with an advocate are significantly more likely to receive the resources and proper placement they need to be successful in life, despite the trauma of being victims of abuse, abandonment or neglect.
