For more than 30 years, the Guardian ad Litem Program has served as the region’s exclusive advocate for children in the court system. Guardian ad Litem is the extension of CASA in FL, and our volunteer Guardians ad Litem are court-appointed special advocates whose sole job is to serve as the voice of the child – a voice that is separate from the child’s family members, foster care providers, attorneys or social workers.

The GAL Program is committed to actively recruiting volunteers to provide support and advocacy for abused, abandoned and neglected children that have been removed from their families by no fault of their own. Guardian ad Litem volunteers don’t have to be attorneys and don’t do the work alone. They are supported within a team that includes a Child Advocate Manager and Best Interest Attorney. Their job is to make recommendations that serve the child’s best interests and help meet every child’s unique needs.

Guardian ad Litem volunteers are saving and changing children’s lives every day in the Tampa Bay area.
