In the life of every child, there should be at least one adult that stands as his or her hero. Usually, that hero is Mom or Dad. Unfortunately, there are over 500 children in Osceola’s foster care system who have no heroes in their lives. The Osceola Guardian Ad Litem program has over 200 volunteers who provide voices for these children in the court system.
Voices for Osceola’s Children, Inc. supports the Guardian Ad Litem Program to recruit, train, and support volunteers to serve as the “voice” for abused, abandoned, and neglected children by advocating for their best interests in dependency court proceedings.
The GAL Program is the only organization that provides this type of caring and objective voice in court. Guardians Ad Litem ensure through their volunteer advocacy efforts that children are not lost in an overburdened legal and social service system or languish in an inappropriate home or shelter.
The financial support and volunteer efforts through Voices for Osceola’s Children – and its generous supporters – also helps fulfill the children’s medical, educational, and social needs. We strive to provide them with as normal a life as possible.
