Be a Hero To A Child

“Guardian ad Litem Foundation of Tampa Bay provided math tutoring to a fifth grader, who was on the second grade level in math and very shy and withdrawn.  As a result, her self-esteem and confidence has improved so much and all her grades are higher. This would not have been possible without your generous financial support.  We thank you!" - Grateful Volunteer Advocate
