Edward Currie grew up in Southern Pines and has been married to his wife Linda for 23 years. He works as a Behavior Technician with children diagnosed with autism.

Edward says that in his studies as a social work student at UNC Pembroke, he learned the importance of advocating for vulnerable populations. And that's how he became interested in becoming a GAL.

Edward volunteered as a mentor with troubled youth in the Find-a-Friend program in Fayetteville for two years. He began serving as a Guardian ad Litem, February 16, 2015, has advocated for 10 children, and helped bring permanence to eight of those children. In a recent case, Edward’s time with the child (almost four years as their advocate!) and recommendations were the crucial elements that set the child on a path to a successful future.

Thank you, Edward, for your dedication and compassion for the children of Cumberland County!
