Children who enter the foster care system are in desperate need of caring adults to safeguard them.

They deserve a strong child advocate to be their voice.

Anyone over 21 who can give four to five hours a month to visit a child, can change a child’s life.

A college degree, legal or social work background is not required.

The very best child advocates are people who care about children.

Georgetown County residents who are concerned about child abuse victims can get involved this month.

The Georgetown County office of the Cass Elias McCarter Guardian ad Litem Program is offering 30 hour training program at no cost.

The next training class starts Sept. 15.

Contact Ron Byrd at the Georgetown County office, 843-436-7030 to learn more about getting involved.
