Today on GIVE, we are excited to bring you Alan Abramowitz, who runs the Guardian Ad Litem Foundation in Florida.  The Guardian Ad Litem Foundation is a state-run and volunteer-operated nonprofit. This program acts as the guardian and advocate of children who have been removed from their homes and placed within the foster care system or in relative care.  The volunteers speak only for the child, in the best interests of the child.

The Foundation supplies what often gets overlooked.  If there is a specific need, they make sure it gets taken care of.  These needs can range from support dogs to tattoo removal, as well as making sure that the kids who age out of the foster system have support and other essentials when they move out into adult life on their own.

The Guardian Ad Litem Foundation is a phenomenal resource to help kids who have no one else speaking for them.  The Foundation works with several other charities across the state of Florida to make sure the kids get the support they need. The need for this service is overwhelming.  There were over 38,000 kids in the foster care system under court jurisdiction independency just last year.
