Voices For Children Foundation
Voices For Children's support enables the Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) Program to recruit, train, and support volunteers to serve as the "voice" for abused, abandoned, and neglected children by advocating for their best interests in dependency court proceedings, the only organization that provides this type of caring and objective voice in court. Guardians Ad Litem make sure children are not lost in an overburdened legal and social service system or languish in an inappropriate home or shelter. Voices' financial support also helps fulfill the children's medical, educational, and social needs.Casa Valentina
Affordable Housing for Young Women Emerging from Foster Care on the Road to Independence
Lack of housing is by far the most difficult and most frequent obstacle that faces mentors and foster youth in our program. We have found that a secure and stable home environment really gives the youth the foundation they need to finish school and go to college. For these reasons and more, Casa Valentina is one of the most important projects for the foster care population in our community.Florida Guardian ad Litem Program
