About

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!
