How We Support the GAL Program
GAL volunteers are dedicated to serving and advocating for every child they are assigned. Each is very passionate about meeting the needs of our region’s most vulnerable children.
Many times a need may arise that is not covered by the state-funded GAL program. This prompted the initial idea of forming a non-profit to raise funds to help provide the additional much needed support and thus the creation of Voices for Children of Okeechobee and the Treasure Coast (Voices OTC).
We raise funds to support and assist our communities’ vulnerable children by meeting their personal, educational, medical, and legal needs.
We build relationships throughout the greater Treasure Coast region to advance the work of the Guardian ad Litem Program and ensure that each child in need of a Guardian ad Litem receives one.

Become a GAL Pal!
When a Guardian ad Litem, also known as a GAL, makes a request on behalf of a child (whether for a bed, bicycle, or any other number of everyday needs) we rise to meet the need. This would not be possible without the GENEROSITY of donors, what we like to call “GAL Pal’s.” A GAL Pal can donate as little as $5.00 monthly to help make this possible!
