Each month, in Buncombe County, over 400 abused and neglected children are in the protective oversight of Social Services, and over 50% of them are seven years of age or younger.  These children are assigned a volunteer Guardian ad Litem by the court to be the sole person whose responsibility is to advocate in and out of court for what is in the child’s best interest,

Many of these have been removed from their homes, often without their clothing, toys or school supplies. These children carry the heavy burdens of loss, as well as adjusting to new homes and environments.

The Guardian ad Litem Association is a 100% volunteer organization that raises money to help these children have a safe, comfortable and normal childhood, helping to launch these kids to a successful emotional, academic and economic future.  Your donation to the Association goes 100% directly to supporting these children.  

Help us give more children in protective oversight a chance for a safer, happier life

Your donation helps the GAL Association provide the most basic needs such as baby supplies, school supplies, car seats, beds, warm clothing, shoes as well as those extras – a camping experience, music lessons, a bicycle – those things that normalize a child’s life and build confidence and self-esteem.

These simple things that so many children in Buncombe County take for granted- please help us provide these things to these innocent kids. Please click the Donate button to make a donation to help these children!
