Guardian ad Litem Program Needs Volunteers
The Pinellas County's Guardian ad Litem program is recruiting volunteers.
Nearly 1,000 children in Pinellas need a guardian ad litem. Volunteers advocate for abused, abandoned or neglected children in the family courts and the child welfare system. The average time needed is four to six hours a month. As an advocate, the guardian ad litem visits the child, becomes familiar with the child's case and makes recommendations to help ensrue the child has a stable environment. Thirty hours of training is required.
Seven classes have been scheduled for 2008. To schedule a one-hour orientation, call (727) 464-6528. Visit www.guardianadlitem6.org.
