We rely on donations to serve a critical need in our community. Without Child Advocates, children would be lost in the system and have no voice. Help us stand up for children who need an advocate and show them they are valued and cared for.
Give a gift
Gifts to Child Advocates provide life-saving advocacy to children who are victims of abuse and neglect and give them hope for a better future.
Financial gifts to Child Advocates allow for the recruitment, training and support of 700+ court-appointed advocate volunteers each year. Without their support, abused and neglected children would not have a caring voice to represent them in court. Give a one-time or recurring gift. However you choose to give, your support will help us meet the needs of Marion County youth.
Support Interrupting Racism for Children
At Child Advocates, we believe it is imperative to work toward an anti-racist community for everyone. As leaders for children and for anti-racist organizations, we have a job to do to dismantle systemic racism, especially for our children’s sake – but we cannot do it alone. Our workshops will resume in the community once we can gather safely together again. In the meantime, if you would like to support this work, you may designate a donation to the Interrupting Racism for Children program.
With schools closed and parents struggling to make ends meet, children are at a greater risk for abuse and neglect than ever. Now is the time to prepare, not just for the urgency of today’s pandemic, but for the future crisis that is sure to come without warning. Your donation is needed now more than ever.
Make a Donation. Make an Impact.
