Denise Coyle is a great friend of the show. She has run for Brevard School Board in the past and currently serves as a guardian ad litem. A guardian ad litem (“GAL”) is a responsible caring adult volunteer, appointed by a judge to advocate for the best interest of a child suspected to be a victim of parental abuse, neglect or abandonment.
A GAL establishes an ongoing relationship with a child (or group of siblings) and conducts a thorough investigation to determine what recommendations to make on the child’s behalf in court. The GAL helps advocate for medical, mental health, educational or economic services needed to bring stability and wholeness to the child’s life, and acts as a monitor to see if court orders are carried out in a timely fashion.
When asked why she volunteered for this very important role, she replied “Someone has to, and that someone is me”. A heart centered mom, wife and community activist, you’ll love this interview with Denise!
