Why We Are Here
& Who We Serve
Each year hundreds of children in Brevard County are removed from their homes and placed under the Dependency Court as the result of abuse, neglect or abandonment.
Each child under the Dependency Court is assigned a volunteer advocate called a Guardian ad Litem (GAL).
When these Guardians have a child with an unmet need, they call upon “Friends” for help with almost anything: a bed, a bike, a pair of shoes, field trip fee……..things that helps bring a sense a normalcy to their disrupted lives.
