Stand up today and declare, "I am for the child."
Over 500 children in New Hanover and Pender Counties entered the court system as victims of abuse and neglect – enough children to fill a typical elementary school twice. They are confused and sad and frightened. They need an advocate. Too often there are not enough volunteers to represent them all.
• Could you speak up for their best interests?
• Could you join 4,800 other volunteers in the state to say "I am for this child."
Our volunteers get results. A Guardian ad Litem provides for each child a singular focus on finding a safe and permanent home and a commitment to communicating with that child consistently and with clarity and kindness. Our volunteers also give each child a clear and strong voice during the court process.
Funds you give change lives. Remember your childhood filled with baseball games, summer camp, ballet or swimming lessons? Doesn’t every child deserve this? Won’t you please help? In New Hanover and Pender Counties there are almost 500 children in state custody because they have been abused and neglected.
Tonya Barber became a Guardian ad Litem in 2013. As a single, working mother, she has still found time to be a voice for children who need one when abuse and neglect happen in their lives. Tonya learned that from seeing those children in her own non-profit work.
