"Since becoming a GAL in 2015, I’ve supported four children. As I’ve interacted with incredibly generous foster parents, affected children yearning for affection and stability, social workers who truly care, and a supportive court system, I now know there is an infinite potential for love in the world, and all it takes to tap into it is the will to do so. For me, being a GAL is an expression of that belief."
— Jason Feingold, GAL since 2015
Judicial District 9’s four counties have 68 community GAL volunteer advocates who are the voices in court for 151 youth.
The district’s 3 staff and 3 attorney advocates are committed to supporting advocates as they tell the story and make fact based recommendations to judges.
Join us! Come learn a child’s story, be their voice, keep systems aware of the child’s sense of time and make a difference in the life of a child.
“When I took my oath as a Guardian ad Litem, I swore to take seriously its meaning, 'keeper of the case.' I’m thankful I speak and work only for my child. It is their best interest in which my time and work continue to be vested." GAL of 3 years.
