About Us

The Friends of the Greenville County Guardian ad Litem Program raises funds and public awareness in support of the Guardian ad Litem Program in Greenville County, South Carolina.  We are an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Guardians ad Litem provide a voice for abused and neglected children. Every year hundreds of children are thrown into the Greenville County Family Court system through no fault of their own. These children, who are placed in the custody of the Department of Social Services, need strong advocates to protect their rights. That’s the job of specially-trained volunteers within the Greenville County Guardian ad Litem Program.

The Greenville County Guardian ad Litem Program recruits, trains and supervises community volunteers to advocate for the children in the custody of the Department of Social Services.  We provide funding to support the training and supervision of these dedicated volunteers, and also for special needs of the children not otherwise covered by the Department of Social Services.
