Paint Your Heart Out
Volunteers, including family members and friends, have participated in Paint Your Heart Out Tampa in each of the past three cycles. We have enjoyed painting homes, planting and mulching flower beds, and other enhancements to assist the homeowners in improving their residence. It is a lot of hard work and a very rewarding experience.

Guardian ad Litem
Since July 1999, Nancy Brown has been a Guardian ad Litem (GAL) volunteer. The Florida Guardian ad Litem Office represents abused, abandoned, and neglected children in the court and community. The program recognizes that children cannot make decisions for themselves that involve their health and safety. The GAL volunteer works as a member of a team that includes a GAL attorney and a GAL Child Advocate Manager. The team serves as an advocate for the child with the goal that every child finds a safe, loving, permanent home where they can thrive. GAL volunteers are responsible for gathering facts surrounding a child’s case, reviewing reports, finding out the child’s wants and desires, visiting the child’s home, school, or placement, and providing the court with an unbiased recommendation on what is required to serve the child’s best interests. The volunteer assists in providing the judge with the information needed and what the child wants to decide what is in the child’s best interests.
