Become a GAL

To become a Guardian ad litem for the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court, attorneys must attend New Guardian ad Litem Training (pre-service training), which the Guardian ad Litem Project offers. New GAL Training will be announced shortly. We hold this training cooperatively with the Cuyahoga County Domestic Relations Court.

Once an attorney completes New Guardian ad Litem Training, the attorney must submit an
Guardian ad Litem Application to the Guardian ad Litem Project.

2019 CFACC Holiday Wishes for Children

Thank you in advance for making a foster child’s holiday season a little brighter! Click on the file for an extensive "Wish List" of items commonly requested for foster children at the holidays, along with suggestions for our Books GALore program. We provide books to children throughout the year to foster their love of reading.  The children we represent rarely own books of their own.

There are currently more than 3,500 children served by the GALs and CASAs on abuse, neglect and dependency cases within the Juvenile Court.  During the holiday season, we hope to meet holiday wishes for about 150 of these children who are selected by their GALs and CASAs.  Their needs are great, and they are likely not to receive many other gifts during the holidays.  The deadline for donating gifts, as well as winter coats, boots, hats and gloves for children ages birth through 12- by Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 4 PM. 

We appreciate any contribution you can make. Thank you so very much for your care and concern for these children.  Need more information on how and what to donate?  Contact CFAdvocates: [email protected] or 216.443.3377.
