We are a nonprofit organization that works directly with children in the care of family and protective services. We need dedicated volunteers to advocate for these kiddos' best interests and needs. A volunteer will receive 30 hours of training, and then they work directly with the child(ren) on their case under the guidance of a supervisor. We are a supportive organization that strives to empower volunteers to be the voice for children who need them.
