The Guardian Ad Litem does a lovely job, but it does not do enough to safe guard the children of Lake County from incarceration in foster care - because there are just not enough of Guardians. Secondly, it needs to be more honest with the Governor as to the sad state of affairs with DCF, and stop covering up, and hiding the abuses by local PI's who manufacture evidence to support their removals, lose kids, don't tell the truth on the stand about their cases, and just plain fail to do the right thing because they fear their administrators and managers. It's a difficult job, but someone needs to do it. By becoming a volunteer you ensure the safety of children from incarceration in foster care. You don't want these children sleeping on office floors as they have been doing in Lake County -- for years. You don't want them going to the Tavares office and sitting there for hours: bored, and hungry. Oh, yes, hungry, because no food is kept on the premises by Management to feed these kids. Bored: because they may sit there for hours and hours while the await a placement. Uncomfortable: because the Tavares office doesn't even if admit it doesn't have beds, or diapers, or blankets on the premises for the children they remove. Often times they are put into rooms, left unsupervised for hours - until they are so bored, tired and hungry the get into trouble. From the moment of removal the children of Lake County need a Guardian to hold their hand, and ensure that they are given food, clean clothing, beds, blankets and comfort. Something the Lake County Office does not provide. Step up, these are your neighbors kids - only you can make a difference in a childs life.
