Guardian ad Litem Program

The Guardian ad Litem Program recruits, trains and supports community members who advocate for the best interest of children who are alleged to be abused, neglected or abandoned and involved in court proceedings. Best interests include preservation of the child’s physical safety and emotional well-being; permanent placement in a stable and nurturing home environment that fosters the child’s healthy growth and development; and protection form further harm during the child’s involvement in the court system.
