Hillsborough County leads the state of Florida in the number of children in care! Won't you join us and say Together, we can help children reach home! Be a voice for a child who stands in the entryway of a group foster home, clutching a makeshift suitcase, a garbage bag filled with everything he owns or for the 1st grader who has had seven addresses in a single year, because she is in foster care. Children who have a Guardian ad Litem Volunteer Child Advocate are half as likely to languish in foster care, and that much more likely to find a safe, permanent home. I am just like you! There are currently almost 1000 children in Hillsborough County who need a Guardian ad Litem Volunteer Child Advocate to be their voice and help them reach home.
Children who have a Guardian ad Litem Volunteer Child Advocate spend less time in foster care, do better academically, receive more needed services and have a consistent adult figure in their life.
