Lamoille Restorative Center is the coordinating agency for the Guardian ad Litem program of Lamoille County. Guardians ad Litem are highly trained volunteers appointed by Family Court to advocate for children who are under supervision of the Department for Children and Families or involved in other family and juvenile court proceedings. GALs act as independent advisors and advocates responsible for helping children understand the proceedings, and provide information about the child’s situation to attorneys and judges to achieve outcomes that are in the child’s best interests. 

 Links to the Judiciary Bureau’s website for the GAL program are below.
