Guardian Ad Litem Seeks Advocates for Children

Updated: Wednesday, June 17, 2015

Elderly volunteersThe Guardian ad Litem Program is seeking volunteers. The Program advocates for the best interest of children throughout Broward County who are abused, abandoned, or neglected. The program uses a team approach to advocate for the children: volunteers, Child Advocate Managers, and attorneys. Together we collect comprehensive information about the child and family, attend meetings and court hearings, and take steps to further the child’s best interests. Our volunteers visit the child monthly in the home environment and make recommendations to the court as to the child’s best interests, and inform the court of the child’s wishes. We also monitor the child’s safety and well-being, as well as monitor significant changes in the parents’ lives, which could impact the child’s safety. To volunteer, call 954-831-6214 and ask to speak with a volunteer recruiter or email

Karen GoebelVolunteer Shines at Animal Care and Adoption

Karen Goebel has been volunteering with Broward County Animal Care and Adoption for the past two and a half years and has become one of our most dedicated volunteers. She has easily distinguished herself with her responsibility, humility, and optimism. She started out as one of our foster parents who took home litters of orphan kittens and gradually ended up volunteering her time at our facility. She may be modest, but her talents are well known amongst all of our volunteers and staff. Newer volunteers often go to her for expertise about our shelter and she is always eager and happy to help. Karen is kind-hearted, high-spirited and an all-around pleasure person to work with. It’s often hard to find quality volunteers, but somehow we got lucky and we’re extremely happy to have her as a part of our team.
