The Guardian Ad Litem Program

In Hillsborough County alone, over 3,500 neglected, abused, and abandoned children have been removed from their homes and placed in the dependency court system. With no family available to speak for them, the child’s fate falls into the hands of the courts. As a Guardian ad Litem volunteer, you have the power to help give these kids a voice.

In 2017 Hillsborough County had over:

GIVE A CHILD A VOICE

The most valuable gift you can give is your time. Your guidance and words of encouragement are priceless to a child without a Guardian ad Litem. However, if volunteering is not an option, a financial contribution is a great way to support our program. Click the “donate” button below to learn about our giving options.
