The Impact


The Impact


THE GOOD

IMPACT is in the POWER of CHILD ADVOCACY through the Guardian Ad Litem Program

THE POWER OF ADVOCACY

A child with a Volunteer Child Advocate is...

TWICE as likely to find a safe, permanent home

Twice as likely to be adopted

HALF as likely to re-enter foster care
MORE ATTENTIVE and do better in school

More likely to graduate

More likely to participate in after-school and extracurricular activities like "normal kids"

More likely to get the services + resources they need for emotional + educational well-being

MORE LIKELY to receive available therapeutic services

...than any child without a Child Advocate Volunteer.

HOPE for the FUTURE

The power of advocacy is real and measurable. Children with an advocate are significantly more likely to receive the resources and proper placement they need to be successful in life, despite the trauma of being victims of abuse, abandonment or neglect.
