Say hello to Daphne! She may be the quietest member of our team, but she sure has the loudest “voice” when it comes to bringing comfort to the people we work with in the community. She is our Canine Companion and is so much more than just an adorable 3 year old Black Labrador/Golden Retriever hybrid dog. Daphne is a smile-maker, sadness-taker, joyful-spirit and fearless-friend who loves giving kisses, chasing squirrels, and hunting for sticks.
Daphne joined Voice for Children in 2017 to accompany children in forensic interviews, support groups, court proceedings, medical exams and other events throughout the community. She has touched many lives, comforted several children, and brings incredible happiness to everyone she meets. Be sure to visit with Daphne when you visit Voices for Children. You won't regret it!
