While there are GAL programs in effect to cover DSS Child Protective cases, there are no such programs for Adult Protective cases.
South Carolina APS Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation Cases 2007-2009
An ad hoc group has formed to develop a plan to address the GAL system for Emergency Adult Protective Service cases. The group has decided to implement a six-month stop gap in which volunteer attorneys will serve as GALs in APS cases until December 2010.
Attorneys interested in volunteering to serve as volunteer GALs in APS cases should contact Cindy Coker at (803) 799-6653, ext. 142 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers will receive pro bono credit for appointments.
