Be the difference in a child’s life!

Right now, there are children in our community who need your help. They don’t need your money – just your time and attention.  Become a guardian ad litem, a trained, court-appointed community volunteer who looks out for the best interests of a child. Abused and neglected children with GAL volunteers spend less time in foster care and do better in school—a significant difference in their lives.

To be a Guardian ad Litem, you needn’t have any specialized experience – just a willingness to volunteer your free time, strong interpersonal and communication skills, a passion for helping vulnerable children, and a flexible schedule.  Training is provided and the personal reward is immeasurable.  We do not have enough GALs in Franklin County and need more people to join us. Can you help?
