Suncoast Voices for Children was founded in 2004 by two Guardians ad Litem (GALs) who were concerned child advocates. They saw that the vulnerable children involved in the dependency system had many unmet needs and wanted to assist them.
We are one of the few non profit's that work on the front end to help keep children out of the
dependency system. To accomplish this, we work with the Sheriff's Department Child
Protection Investigators to provide items necessary to keep children from entering foster care.
Sometimes simply providing a child a bed will keep him in a stable home.
Once children have been removed from their home and are in the 'system', we work with their
Case Manager and Guardian ad Litem to meet their needs.
When these children are removed, many leave home with nothing but the clothes on their backs.
Some children removed from their homes are cared for by non-relatives who receive no State funds.
Many of the children in the foster care system do not have the benefit of activities such as sports,
scouting, marching band, clubs, music/dance lessons, or a bicycle.
