Some children are faced with less than ideal circumstances that require an agent to intervene on their behalf and act in their best interest. Voices For Children, with the Guardian Ad Litem Program, work to expand the effectiveness of representation for children and youth in the foster care system. In addition to advocating for their wellbeing, Voices works to provide the direct financial support necessary to ensure that these children receive the education, life skills and enrichment activities that they so desperately need. Under the leadership of President & CEO Nelson F. Hincapie, Voices has reached new service delivery and fundraising milestones. “Through Voices, we have an opportunity to be a voice for foster children, to be the change they need, to give them courage and hope, and help them believe that they can have a better and brighter future.”; BeAVoice.org.
