Speaking up for Kids in Foster Care

Voices for Children advocates for abused and neglected children and youth in St. Louis by representing their best interests in court and in the community.

Thanks to For the City for creating this video and allowing us to share it.

Our Vision

A community where every child is nurtured, supported, and has access to the connections and resources necessary for them to know their value and reach their full potential.

The Need

Every day, judges, child welfare professionals and caregivers make decisions that affect children who, through no fault of their own, were removed from the care of their parents and brought into state custody.

These children, who have the most to gain or lose, have the least power in the decisions made by the court and the professionals who are responsible for their well-being.

Voices’ Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers are the only people whose sole focus is the best interest of the child. Our advocates give our children a powerful voice in decisions about where they will live and go to school, whether and how often they can spend time with siblings and other relatives, how long they will be in state custody and where they will go when they leave foster care.

Give Hope to a Child

Give the gift of hope to a child. Voices needs $1,500 per child, per year to provide high quality advocacy for St. Louis children in foster care.
