About us

Mission Statement

Provide holistic support to abused and neglected children and court appointed volunteers for the Pickens County Guardian ad Litem program, encompassing volunteer-centric events and community awareness.

Vision Statement

That no child in Pickens County goes without the love, care, and necessities to have a safe, happy, and healthy childhood while a part of the Guardian ad Litem program.

Our program touches the lives of neglected and abused children of Pickens County through our annual Heart & Sole Back to School event and the Annual Spring Fling Day in April. Friends of the Guardian ad Litem also maintain new clothes in a clothes closet at the Pickens County DSS office for children coming into custody, help pay for camps, tutoring, and medical assistance. In addition we help with training and support of the Guardian ad Litem volunteers of Pickens County. Assistance is also offered for other requests that are not covered through state programs.
