Guardian ad Litem Program

JUNE 1, 2018

by Stephen Cornelius

Children who enter the foster care system are in need of caring adults to speak up for them in Family Court. The Guardian ad Litem is a strong child advocate for children.

If you are over 21 and can give 4-5 hours a month to visit a child, you can change a child’s life. You do not need a college degree, or a legal or social work background. The very best child advocates are people who care about children.

Horry County residents who are concerned about child abuse victims can get involved this month. The Horry County office of the Cass Elias McCarter Guardian ad Litem Program is offering 30 hour training program at no cost.

The next training class starts June 18, 2018. Contact Erin Marshall at the Horry County office, 843-347-9750 or today and learn more about how you can get involved. You can also get more information and download an application at

Be the person who positively changes a child’s life forever!

I have been working with these children for some 4 years. It is the greatest thing I have ever done.
