It’s that time of the year! That’s right, Giving Tuesday is here, and we want to take a moment to share what we are thankful for. There is always something or someone to be thankful for.
First, we take a moment to reflect on the reason we all come together; the reason that we are driven to do the work we do: the child. Each child whose life we have been involved in has been impacted in a way that could not have been possible without a Guardian ad Litem (GAL) Volunteer. From educational advocacy and support to making sure a child is celebrated on their special day, and most importantly, making sure they have a safe and stable home to go to, the GAL is the voice of the child. Supporting the GAL is their Florida Board Certified Child Advocate Manager, and their Program Attorney. This layer of the team ensures next-step resources and directives that help to strategically guide a case through court. Of course, no organization can navigate without steady leadership. The Foundation would like to recognize Vanessa, Chris, and Christine for their commitment and dedication to leading the Program and for working tirelessly to ensure every child who is represented by a GAL has their best interests met. Finally, we want to thank all of you, who support us through your own advocacy efforts, and who make donations that aid our work.
We appeal to the generosity of our supporters to make a donation towards our 2022 annual giving campaign. Give a little more this year, and help us find permanency for a child in the dependency system. The more you give, the more GALs we can certify to be the voice for a child, and the more needs we can fulfill for children awaiting permanency.
You can donate here, or give us a call to find out more at 904-512-6084. All donations are tax deductible.
