Tampa Bay’s foster children need more help than the system can provide. The Guardian ad Litem Foundation of Tampa Bay is here to help meet their needs.
We help provide for children's social, emotional, educational and medical needs. Be a hero to a child and help an abused child today.
Guardian ad Litem volunteers are the voice of the child in court and the child’s best interest is their only interest.
Our goal is that every child in the child welfare system in Pinellas and Pasco Counties will have a voice in court by the year 2020. We need your help to achieve it.
Find us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, & Linkedin to stay up to date with all of our latest news & events.
Right here in our local community, almost 3,000 children are in front of the courts each year. At any given time, there are over 1,000 kids waiting to be appointed a volunteer child advocate.
The Guardian ad Litem Foundation of Tampa Bay supports the Guardian ad Litem Program of the Sixth Judicial Circuit.
The Guardian ad Litem program is a research-based, effective program of trained, competent, court-appointed community volunteers delivering greater efficiency in government systems, and significantly improved outcomes for the children that they serve.

We envision a world in which every child has a safe and permanent home with the opportunity to thrive.
