Our center serves as a voice and an advocate for children throughout Genesee and Shiawassee Counties. Voices for Children Advocacy Center serves (1) child victims of abuse and neglect and their families (including human trafficking), (2) with prevention for children in Genesee and Shiawassee Counties, and (3) advocacy for the well-being of the child.

Voices for Children Advocacy Center works to intervene the alarming number of children who are victims of abuse by educating, empowering, and enlightening the community, school-aged children, and parents about prevention factors. Voices for Children leads the community in responding to victims of child abuse violence and works to break the cycle of abuse via prevention, and intervention programming, as well as community education. Voices for Children is dedicated to building healthy relationships and provides a continuum of services for persons of all ages who have been, or are at risk of being, victims of child abuse or neglect. Our agency’s model is grounded in a strengths-based, empowerment philosophy and incorporates best practices and evidence-based strategies.

All of our services are completely free to the family. Voices for Children Advocacy Center creates a vital link between community services and victims of child abuse.

Current Events

Meet Daphne - Canine Advocate

Daphne joined our staff in June 2017 from Rochester, MI where she worked with Leader Dogs for the Blind. Our friends at the Canine Advocacy Program (CAP) worked with Daphne and her handlers to enhance her training and further develop her skills. In less than a month, she was ready to begin working with kids in the forensic interviews and in court. She is a Black Labrador/Golden Retriever hybrid who loves giving kisses, playing with her toys, and finding sticks in the yard.

Daphne was brought to Voices for Children to accompany children in forensic interviews, support groups, court proceedings, medical exams, and other events throughout the community. Our hope with having Daphne at our facility is to reduce anxiety and bring joy to the people we work with. We really enjoy having her on staff, and we hope she brings you as much joy as she has brought us.
