About Voices For Children Foundation

Guardians ad Litem are trained, court-appointed adults who serve as their representative voices in dependency court proceedings. Currently, over 3,600 children are in Miami-Dade County’s Foster Care system and only 66% of children are represented by Guardians ad Litem. For more information, please visit www.BeAVoice.org.
