Advocate For Children and Families
Children and families experiencing foster care, mental health challenges, addiction and ultimately isolation feel marginalized, unheard, and overlooked, which can exacerbate their struggles. Advocates play a crucial role in providing support and assistance by raising awareness, amplifying their voices, and pushing for change. They serve as a vital bridge, connecting children and families to a network of support that offers valuable resources, education, and more. Through their tireless efforts, advocates help create a supportive environment where these children and families can access the help they need to overcome obstacles and thrive.
