What Volunteers Are Saying:
- "I can’t recall any situation in a 30-year career as meaningful as protecting the life of a child and reporting a happy outcome. Grateful for the opportunity."
- "It has definitely been an experience that has made me a better person and I hope that the children I have served will know they were important enough to fight/advocate for!"
- "I have had such a wonderful life and if I can give something back to the world of children who need love and attention that is a great reward."
- “Being a GAL has taught me finding answers for some tragic situations often takes time. It is not clear-cut work. However, in the end I will have done something for a vulnerable child who could not speak on their own!”
