Florida Guardian ad Litem Foundation
ABOUT THE FLORIDA GUARDIAN AD LITEM FOUNDATION
The Mission To provide additional resources for the Florida Guardian ad Litem Program, its volunteers, and its affiliated circuit non-profit organizations in order to promote Guardian ad Litem representation for abused, abandoned, and neglected children in Florida’s dependency system.
The Vision To provide additional resources sufficient to assure that 100% of Florida’s abused, abandoned, and neglected children served by the Guardian ad Litem Program continue to receive the highest quality representation.
Who We Are The Florida Guardian ad Litem Foundation works to support the Florida Guardian ad Litem Program through private fundraising. Currently, the Florida Guardian ad Litem Program represents more than 27,000 abused and neglected children, but more 5,000 children are still in need of the voice in court. A Guardian ad Litem can provide that voice. Through financial support of the Florida Guardian ad Litem Program, the Florida Guardian ad Litem Foundation is helping to create a new reality – where every abused, abandoned and neglected child in Florida has a voice in court through their Guardian ad Litem.
• Total number of children in the child welfare system with open court cases: 32,000.
• Number of these children with a Guardian ad Litem: 27,000.
• Number of children without a Guardian ad Litem: 5,000.
• There are more than 7,000 volunteers working with staff to represent children.
