We would like to Welcome The North West Florida Gaurdian ad Litem Foundation, Inc to the 9th Annual Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival.
The festival is in full support and appreciation of the mission of the NW Florida Gaurdian ad Litem Foundation, Inc.
The mission for the Guardian ad Litem is to: Provide for the needs of abused, abandoned and neglected children and
support the volunteer advocates in the Guardian ad Litem program. The NW Florida Guardian ad Litem Foundation's sole
purpose is to support the Guardian ad Litem program for the first judicial circuit (Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton).
The GAL program is a state operated function of the 1st judicial circuit, the Foundation supports them in two ways,
1. Maintain a 'children in need fund' and 2. Support recruitment, retention and recognition of GAL volunteers. http://www.nwfgal.org
