Our Mission:


When a child is rescued from abuse or neglect it’s a great thing.  But then what? Who speaks for the child after the headlines? In St. Louis, that someone is Voices for Children.  For 38 years, only Voices for Children and our volunteers have stepped up,  representing children’s best interests in court and in the community. 

History shows that Voices for Children makes a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable among us.  Won’t you be a part of that difference?  


Emily's Dragon

Emily's Dragon tells the emotional story of a young girl removed from her home and placed in foster care, and how her CASA volunteer made a difference during this critical point in her life. 


About Us

Voices for Children (a non-profit 501 (C) (3) tax exempt organization) is the only Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA Volunteer) member program in St. Louis City and County. We serve children and youth from birth through age 20 from all regions of the area.

St. Louis is home to more than 1,600 fostered youth. For us, this is unacceptable. Our dedicated team of child advocacy attorneys, social work professionals and support staff, serves nearly 650 children and youth and supervises over 330 CASA Volunteers.

Get Involved

Voices’ advocates do what no one else does; ensuring children in foster care have a strong voice in the critical decisions that impact their lives. Stronger outcomes for foster children reduce these costs by getting kids out of care faster and preventing future problems.
