Billboards are up in Brevard County

Billboards with the message “What’s Your Superpower? Become a Guardian ad Litem” are up in Brevard County!

 

The billboards depict a GAL volunteer holding a child by the hand – both wearing capes – and the words “I Am for the Child.” 

 

The Guardian ad Litem program has two billboard locations in Brevard County. One billboard is on I-95, about 1.7 miles north of Wickham road - facing south. The second billboard is on US 1, about 2 miles north of 528 facing south. The billboards have The Guardian ad Litem program’s local phone number so we hope to have a lot of new volunteers signing up to be the voice for a child.

 

Statewide, the billboards will run in 12 communities, thanks to a grant from the National Association of Court Appointed Special Advocates and the generosity of Clear Channel.

About the Guardian ad Litem Program

Thousands of abused, abandoned and neglected children become the subject of judicial proceedings each year in Florida. Their voices are often unheard and best interests overlooked in the complicated and overburdened adversary process. Guardians ad Litem (GAL) are citizens who volunteer to become part of a court program to represent the best interests of an assigned child. The volunteer Guardian ad Litem is a representative for the child before the court, social service agencies and the community. He/she also protects the child during the family crisis, court proceedings, and follows the child’ progress.
