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.

    About The Event

    Our luncheon theme is “Helping Our Kids Soar.”  This year we will explore the joys and challenges of fostering children, and what it takes to make a temporary placement feel more like a home. Children who have lost the comfort of parental support bear many scars, but they are also incredibly resilient. Join us to hear how local children are rising above past trauma as they encounter childhood normalcy.
