Throughout all of Isriel’s childhood, his mother struggled with raising her children. His grandmother Eleanor sacrificed everything to care for him and his six brothers. But sadly, she passed away when he was nine and Isriel began his journey through foster care.
As do most children, he felt afraid and without anyone to rely on. He was living at a children’s shelter when he met Voices’ President & CEO, who would go out of his way to make Isriel feel special.
Voices For Children does so much more than just hand over checks. We are the one to call, the hand to hold, the shoulder to cry on and that is what kids like Isriel need to heal the hurt and break the cycle of abuse, abandonment, and neglect.
