October 2017 – Guardian ad Litem

Established by statute in 1983, the North Carolina Guardian ad Litem Program has been serving abused and neglected children for more than 30 years. Our mission is to provide trained independent advocates to represent and promote the best interests of abused, neglected, and dependent children in the state court system and to work expediently toward a plan that ensures these children are in a safe, permanent home.

All Guardian ad Litem advocates are trained, supervised, and supported by program staff in each county of the state. The collaborative model of GAL attorney advocates, volunteers, and staff ensures that all North Carolina children who are alleged by the Division of Social Services to have been abused or neglected receive GAL legal advocacy services.
