A Ribbon Cutting ceremony was held for the new Laurens County Guardian Ad Litem offices at Laurensville Lane Friday afternoon. Laurens County Coordinator Catherine Beasley said the new facilities give more space for interacting with volunteers, storage of records and present a more kid-friendly atmosphere. Representatives from various agencies that work with the Guardian Ad Litem program joined Ad Litem Volunteers for the event. Laurens Mayor Sharon Brownlee cut the ribbon to officially open the new office. It’s at #4 Liberty Lane, right off West Hampton Street near Church Street.
Coordinator Catherine Beasley said she’s targeting a goal of getting 20 new volunteer Guardians Ad Litem to help cover a case load of representing and assisting over 155 Laurens County children through the Family Court system.
