The Friends of the Pickens County Guardian ad Litem have been providing financial assistance for the neglected and abused children and the Guardian ad Litem program of Pickens County, South Carolina since 2002.


Friends of GAL is a non-profit charitable organization (501(c)3) that provides clothing and shoes, school supplies, and other opportunities for neglected and abused children. The children are represented by a Family Court appointed volunteer Guardian ad Litem in Pickens County. All are currently part of the foster and family preservation of Pickens County Department of Social Services.
