About Voices For Children Foundation

Voices For Children Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that raises funds to help ensure that abused, abandoned, and neglected children in Miami-Dade County each have a court-appointed Guardian ad Litem and that financial assistance and other resources are available for their health, educational, and social needs. 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 unrepresented by Guardians ad Litem. For more information, please visit www.BeAVoice.org.
