Mission Statement

At Kids’ Voice of Indiana, our mission is to serve Indiana’s children and families by providing legal education, child advocacy, and family visitation through our programs.

Description

For more than three decades, Kids’ Voice has been a champion in Marion County for abused and neglected children, and those at substantial risk.

Kids’ Voice works to prevent children from experiencing or re-experiencing abuse and/or neglect. We use a comprehensive approach which includes diligent advocacy of children’s best interests in Court, updated legal information for attorneys, child service professionals, and the community, and providing a safe place for children and parents to spend time together.

- In 1983, we authored an invaluable resource (the Indiana CHINS and Family Law Deskbook) for Indiana judges, attorneys and other professionals working in the child welfare field. The Deskbook continues to be published every two years and is relied on by many professionals.
- In 1985, Kids' Voice of Indiana was formed as a non-profit.
- In 1993, the Guardian ad Litem (GAL) program for kids was established.
- In 1997, the Safe Child Parenting Time program was established.
- In 2009, we became a United Way agency.
- In 2021, the City of Indianapolis awarded Kids' Voice the contract to be the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program for Marion County, IN.
- Also in 2021, the Indianapolis Bar Association and Foundation recognized Kids' Voice as the recipient of the Magistrate Deborah J. Shook Award for Excellence in Family Law.
