mom and childEvery year thousands of children are abused or neglected. They are put into a court system they do not understand. They need a voice to help determine what is in their best interest.

Child Advocates are trained community volunteers who are appointed by the court to speak for the best interest of these neglected and abused children. We serve as investigator, advocate, and facilitator. We are their voices.

The Dearborn – Ohio County Child Advocate program is looking for compassionate, caring volunteers to be the “voices of children”. If you love children and have the time to help ensure that the children in our counties have a safe, happy home, we need your help. 


Children on the waiting list: 195
Currently being served: 74

 If you live in Dearborn or Ohio County, please consider volunteering to be the “voice of a child”.
