Voices for Children

Voices For Children is an initiative we launched in 2009 to ensure the long-term sustainability of services to all abused and neglected children in Fort Bend County.  As our community continues to grow, so does the incidence of abuse which increases the demand and need for our services.

The Voices For Children initiative invites supporters of Child Advocates of Fort Bend to make a financial pledge, payable over five years, by joining our VOICES FOR CHILDREN CIRCLE. This group of loyal donors helps ensure uninterrupted services for children and families we serve.  Funds also help Child Advocates of Fort Bend plan for the future and enable us to continue to offer the highest quality, trauma-specialized program services for children from birth to 18 years of age. Additionally, many donors appreciate that their payments can be spread over years, while being recognized for the total value of their five-year pledge.

 

Voices For Children Tours

The cornerstone of our VOICES FOR CHILDREN Program is our VOICES FOR CHILDREN “Behind the Scenes” Tour via ZOOM. Through real life stories of children who have received services at our Children’s Advocacy Center or through our CASA program and an in-depth look at the process and tools we use, the tour walks you through the path a child travels as they disclose their abuse, receive treatment and heal. The tour is presented by therapists, court appointed advocates and our professional staff who work with the children on a daily basis. Tour guests witness our multi-disciplinary team in action through discussions of the four partner agencies that are housed on our campus: the Child Abuse Divisions of the Fort Bend County District Attorney’s Office, the County Attorney’s Office, Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Department and Children’s Protective Services – Investigations and Conservatorship. Each tour lasts approximately 45 minutes. Tours are held on the first Tuesday (10am) and the third Thursday (4pm) of each month.

Voices For Children Transforming Lives Breakfast

Our Voices For Children Transforming Lives Breakfast is the highlight of our program.  Every September, we invite guests who have been a part of a VOICES FOR CHILDREN Tour to join us for an inspiring program that shows the impact the supporters of our VOICES FOR CHILDREN CIRCLE make on the children and families we serve. This deeply moving, mission driven event shares the life-changing, often lifesaving transformational work our programs offer.
