ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION

 

The Statewide Guardian ad Litem Office is Florida’s award-winning, state-funded child advocacy organization. With more than 10,000 volunteers and 900 employees, its primary focus is powerful and effective representation of Florida’s abused, neglected, and abandoned children. Most of these children are abruptly removed from their homes and sadly end up in out-of-home care. The Office’s mission is to provide the most vulnerable children in Florida with an adult from their community who will be a consistent, positive presence in the child’s life as a part of a multi-disciplinary team that may include trained volunteers, pro bono attorneys, staff attorneys, and child welfare professionals providing the highest quality community advocacy and legal representation to protest each child’s rights and best interests. A critical function is to provide dependency judges with thorough and accurate information regarding the children under the court’s jurisdiction. The Office’s core values strongly reinforce and enhance its mission. Those values are:

 

  • Commitment to Children
  • Communication Built on Trust
  • Collective Empowerment
  • Collaboration
  • Courtesy
