Mission Statement

Our mission is to champion public policies that improve the lives of Virginia’s children.

Description

Founded in 1994, Voices for Virginia’s Children is the Commonwealth’s only independent, multi-issue child policy and advocacy organization. We are home to the Kids Count Data Center for Virginia, tracking more than 100 indicators of child well-being in each locality over time. Using this data and our independent policy research, we determine unmet needs and threats to child well-being, recommend sound policy solutions, provide objective input to policymakers, and educate and mobilize leaders and concerned citizens to support policy initiatives.

We are particularly focused on children whose needs are often overlooked, concentrating our efforts on policies in the areas of early childhood, foster care and adoption, health and mental health, and family economic security.

The impact of our work is felt by children, youth and families throughout Virginia.
