Voices for Children represents the best interests of abused and neglected children placed in foster care in St. Louis. Through no fault of their own, children and youth from birth through 21 find themselves under the protective custody of the state. Critical decisions affecting their lives today and their futures are made by the court. An overburdened state agency is responsible for their safety, well-being and permanency.
Voices’ CASA volunteers, child advocacy attorneys and social work professionals’ advocate for children to ensure their safety, enable them to heal, improve their experiences in foster care and help them find a forever family. Voices’ child advocates ensure children are receiving the educational, health and mental health services they need to heal while working to find them safety and stability in a home where they can thrive.
