Children who enter the foster care system are in need of caring adults to speak up for them in Family Court.  The Guardian ad Litem is a strong advocate for children. If you are over 21 years old and can give four to five hours a month to visit a child, you can change a child’s life. You do not need a college degree, or a legal or social work background.  The very best child advocates are people who care about children.

Kershaw County residents who are concerned about child abuse victims can get involved this month.  The Kershaw County Office of the Cass Elias McCarter Guardian ad Litem Program is offering the training program at no cost. The next training class is scheduled to start February 12, 2018.

Contact Christy Vinson at the Kershaw County office at (803) 425-1412) today, and learn more about how you can get involved. You can also get more information and download an application at
