Advocating for one child at a time.

The Lewis County GAL Program recruits, trains and supports community volunteers who advocate on behalf of abused and neglected children in our community. GAL volunteers do their own investigation, get to know each child and write reports directly to the judge with recommendations for what’s in the child’s best interests.

GAL volunteers get cases moving through the child welfare system and advocate strongly to help ensure each child is in a secure, safe home. Our program succeeds with help from dedicated staff and caring volunteers.
