They wait for your help

The Children’s Guardian Fund provides funding to meet emergency needs and enable normalcy and enrichment in the lives of children in foster and state care in Florida’s 12th Judicial Circuit. We also promote public awareness and community support for the children’s needs. And finally, believing that every child removed from their home needs a voice, we provide limited funding to support the recruitment, training and retention of Guardian ad Litem Program volunteers.
