GAL program wins productivity award

Alan Abramowitz For the second year in a row, the Florida Statewide Guardian ad Litem Program won a Prudential-Davis Productivity Award.

Alan Abramowitz, executive director of the GAL Program, said his staff and volunteers work in an effective public-private partnership that results in better outcomes for abused and neglected children, with less time in foster care and quicker adoptions.

“We were able to calculate the cost savings for the state, and it’s over $18 million a year for all the time these volunteers spend doing this work,” Abramowitz said.
