Our program provides volunteer advocates for abused and neglected children, many of whom are in the foster care system. Our training teaches caring adults how to speak up for these children in and out of the court. By visiting the children and working directly with them, our volunteers learn about their hopes and dreams. A volunteer will then help children find safety and security in a home where they can grow and thrive.
