There are three types of programs for volunteers who want to help abused or neglected children who are now in foster care. In the Advocate Program, volunteers become a court appointed special advocate for a child. Once or twice per year, advocates submit a report to the court and attend a court hearing for the child. Volunteering as a visiting program advocate means visiting a child for 2 to 4 hours every month with a 6 month committment. Nonadvocate volunteers can help with special projects and planning childrens activities and fundraisers.
