Guardian ad Litem volunteers listen first. Then they act.
In advocating for an abused or neglected child, you give that child a voice — and a chance for a better life.
What do GALs do?
GAL volunteers get to know the child and everyone involved in the child’s life, including family, teachers, doctors, social workers and others. They gather information about the child and what the child needs. Their recommendations to the court help the judge make an informed decision about a child’s future. GAL volunteers provide a stable presence in a child’s life.
