6th Circuit Guardian ad Litem Project

Fostering Independence is a targeted recruitment effort to get attorneys to work pro bono as part of the GAL team. When an attorney agrees to represent a teen, either as a guardian or as a pro bono attorney, the Program provides training, which can be viewed from our website. Additionally, our staff is always available to help with the myriad of issues affecting teens, for example; barriers to permanency for this age group, aging out of foster care without adequate support and appropriate housing, and lack of independent living services.
