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.

Upcoming Event

  • Volunteer Appreciation Event

    If you are an active GAL volunteer in the 12th Judicial Circuit, The Children’s Guardian Fund Board would like to welcome you for an appreciation event like no other!

    Load up your car and join us for an old-fashioned drive-in movie night.  COVID-friendly refreshments will be provided.  Each car will receive individually wrapped snack bags pre-packaged in paper bags. BONUS – let us know you are bringing a friend interested in learning more about becoming a GAL volunteer and we will have a special treat bag made up just for them!

    The front portion of the parking lot will have space for lawn chairs for those who prefer to sit in the open.  If you would like something in addition to movie night snacks, feel free to pack a picnic.

    6:30-7:30 pm – pre-event concert

    7:30-8:00 pm – award ceremony

    8:00-9:00 pm – movie “Resilience”

    In the event of inclement weather, the event will be rescheduled. 

    Space is limited, so please be sure to reserve your spot by April 1, 2021, using the form below:
