VOLUNTEER!

    The hardest part isn’t saying goodbye to a child you’ve championed through their time in foster care.

    It isn’t speaking up for their needs in court.

    It isn’t working together with social workers and family members toward a common goal.

    It isn’t learning how to advocate for a child and help them navigate the system.

    The hardest part is deciding to make a difference.

    Every Child Has A Chance – It’s You!®

    One voice. A child’s voice. They should be laughing, joking, and giggling. They are silenced by abuse, neglect, and an unknown home. Who will be their voice for this child in matters that affect the rest of their lives?
    One voice. Your voice. You can speak for a child. You can change a child’s story.   tap here to Watch a short video on child advocacy

    Imagine a child that you know and love is in a bad situation. Maybe there are drugs involved. Perhaps abuse. Then they are in foster care.
    Imagine that child being with strangers. Perhaps in a new school. It doesn’t matter that home is scary. It is all they know. They just want home. They want their stuff, their friends. They do not know what happens in their home doesn’t happen in other homes. It is all they have known.
    What if someone stepped up to say “My name is …. I’m going to help you through this.”? What if that someone was you?
    Let us tell you more. Please. Children are waiting.  tap here to Learn how you can help.
