ABOUT OUR FOUNDATION
In the life of every child, there should be at least one adult that stands as his or her hero. Usually, that hero is Mom or Dad. Unfortunately, there are over 500 children in Osceola’s foster care system who have no heroes in their lives. The Osceola Guardian Ad Litem office has over 200 volunteers who provide voices for these children in the court system.
Guardian ad Litem Foundation of Osceola County, Inc. supports the Guardian Ad Litem Office to recruit, train, and support volunteers to serve as the “voice” for abused, abandoned, and neglected children by advocating for their best interests in dependency court proceedings.
The GAL Office is the only organization that provides this type of caring and objective voice in court. Guardians Ad Litem ensures through their volunteer advocacy efforts that children are not lost in an overburdened legal and social service system or languish in an inappropriate home or shelter.
The financial support and volunteer efforts through Guardian ad Litem Foundation of Osceola County, Inc. and its generous supporters, also help fulfill the children’s medical, educational, and social needs. We strive to provide them with as normal a life as possible.
