Our Mission

Ensure that every child in the dependency court system is represented by a Guardian ad Litem volunteer

Guardian Ad Litem Foundation (GAL) 20th Judicial Circuit is a non-profit agency supporting Florida’s 20th Judicial Circuit Guardian ad Litem Program-Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties. Our mission is to raise funds so: 1) every abused, neglected or abandoned child in Southwest Florida may be paired with a GAL volunteer advocate whose role is to represent the best interests of the child until a safe, permanent placement can be achieved; and 2) so every GAL volunteer may access financial assistance and resources on behalf of the child and not provided by any other source.
