IMPACT is in the POWER of CHILD ADVOCACY through the Guardian Ad Litem Program

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




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.

The mission and purpose of Speak Up for Kids is to ensure that the Guardian Ad Litem Program can recruit, train and support more of GAL Volunteer Child Advocates in order to Speak Up and be hope for 100% of abused, abandoned and neglected children in our community.
