A program known for its dedication to children, Guardian ad Litem, took an opportunity last week to celebrate its volunteers and highlight their success.

Dozens met at Outback Steakhouse on Friday to thank dedicated volunteers with a luncheon donated by the restaurant. They were joined by legislators, local judges and other court officials for the Pitt County celebration of Guardian ad Litem Child Advocate Month, as proclaimed by Gov. Pat McCrory.


The program, whose volunteers advocate for abused and neglected children in the state court system, helps protect the children’s best interest as cases make their way through a court system. Volunteers work with family members, social workers and law enforcement.
