Upcoming Trainings & Events





"The term 'ad Litem' is Latin for 'this litigation' or 'for this case.' Thus, a Guardian ad Litem helps to represent a child for only the duration of the court proceedings and does not serve as a legal guardian. As a volunteer, I feel more effective than at any other time in my life. I know that my work changes the world, one child at a time.I know in my heart that I have made a difference because I had a role in advocating for a new life for a child." — Dorothy Allsbrook, GAL since 2011


“It takes a special kind of person to volunteer for the Guardian ad Litem program." —Cynthia Coley, GAL Program Supervisor for Wayne County

“I recall thinking as I completed my training, that I would never have a case because people in this area did not purposely hurt their children. Unfortunately this is not true." —Nancy West, GAL Volunteer
