Very simply, our organization trains and supports volunteers - volunteers who make a difference in the lives of children. These volunteers are assigned to the cases of children who have been victims of life-threatening abuse or neglect and - as a result - have been placed in protective custody.
Our volunteers contact caseworkers, interview parents and other family members, ensure children receive necessary medical care, look out for educational interests and make recommendations in court regarding the permanent placement of the child.
Most importantly, they serve as a "constant" person for that child to count on during a very tumultuous time. Essentially, our volunteers do whatever it takes to ensure that the needs of the child are being met while that child is in care.
