IMAGINE GROWING UP WITHOUT

EVER KNOWING THE FEELING OF FAMILY

We help provide stability, safety, and a feeling of home by ensuring children in foster care have a caring and consistent person to be there for them and by providing resources to fulfill their needs.

 

However, we believe that resources can only go so far. Through our programs, we are able to offer personalized attention and a commitment to making a difference in their lives. We advocate for their best interest in court proceedings and work to create the best possible outcomes for them.

Breaking the cycle by having a Guardian ad Litem

Our Programs

BECOME A
GUARDIAN
AD LITEM

A Guardian ad Litem is a trained volunteer appointed by the court to protect and advocate for the best interest of a child in foster care. They work one-on-one with the child or siblings to ensure their needs are met. You can be the one to give that child back their sense of belonging, their rights, and best of all, hope for a better life.

CHILDREN'S
NEEDS
PROGRAM

Through the Children’s Needs Program, Voices supplements insufficient State and Federal entitlements. By addressing basic needs such as food, clothing, rent and utility assistance, furniture, transportation, etc., we help ease social and financial hardships. The program’s initiatives also provide funds for educational, social and other enrichment needs that help youth in foster care build a positive future.

OUR IMPACT

  • 793 Active Guardian ad Litem volunteers

  • Over 45,000 children impacted since 1984

  • Over 1,000 children served in the last year

Ticket To Dream going the extra step for foster kids!

Children in Foster Care often find themselves at a disadvantage to their peers; from after-school activities to clothing, or birthday parties to parental involvement at school activities, children in foster care feel left out and singled out.
