Mission Statement

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 part of a multi-disciplinary team that includes an attorney, child welfare professional and hopefully a community volunteer providing the highest quality community advocacy and legal representation to protect each child’s legal interests. To provide dependency judges with thorough and accurate information regarding the children under the court’s jurisdiction.


The Florida Guardian ad Litem Office will continue to be a powerful and effective voice advocating for the best interests of Florida's abused, abandoned, and neglected children and be recognized and respected as a partnership of community advocates, Guardian ad Litem Attorneys and Certified Child Advocate Managers. To the fullest extent possible, this vision will be realized through volunteers who will advocate as Guardians ad Litem for the children they serve.
