Your voice can be the difference in a child's life!
The Guardian ad Litem (GAL) Program is looking for volunteers to give the children in their program a voice. The GAL program provides each child in their Program with a specially trained volunteer who visits them monthly, develops a relationship with them, and then goes to court with one of our program attorneys to lend them their voice. Volunteers can give children in need a brighter future by giving their time, and making sure that they are denied no opportunity because of situations beyond their control.
