The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
Come volunteer to be appointed as Court Advocate to a foster child for the duration of his or her time in foster care, to advocate for, support, mentor, and speak up for that child.
Foster care is a scary time for children, and decisions that will affect the rest of their future must be made. Come be trained to help watch over these children, to support them during this difficult time, and to help make the tough decisions that will direct the trajectory of their lives. Advocates are needed to volunteer from the community to guard and shore up our local child welfare system, and to take good care of these vulnerable little citizens!
