Every child deserves a safe, loving, and permanent home.
See how the Guardian ad Litem Program and the Heart Gallery of Tampa are working together to bring hope to the 3,200 children in Hillsborough County who are waiting on a place to call home.
Did you know there are local foster children waiting to be adopted right here in Tampa Bay? The mission of the Heart Gallery of Tampa is to raise awareness of Tampa's waiting foster children, engage the community in their welfare, and secure permanent, loving adoptive families. Utilizing professional photography and videography, the faces of these children, formally hidden from view, are inspiring communities around the world to open their hearts and home to children in need.

The child’s fate then falls into the hands of the courts. As a Guardian ad Litem volunteer child advocate, you have the power to help give these kids a voice and be their champion in a complicated system.
