A Little Goes a Long Way

We are only able to offer these services to "our" children because of generous donations from our community.  The Friends are the funding source of last resort and fulfill needs that would otherwise go unmet. 

Because we are an all volunteer organization with less than .5% overhead, we are able to deliver our services - like some emergency basic needs, computers or camps, in the most cost effective manner possible.  Please consider the Friends when you are reviewing your charitable donations this year and make your tax deductible donations to "Friends of Guardian ad Litem" and send them to PO Box 4941, Cary NC 27519.
