Will you help?
Child Advocates are trained community volunteers...
We are appointed by the court to speak for the best interest of these neglected and abused children. We serve as investigator, advocate, and facilitator. We are their voices.
The Dearborn – Ohio County Child Advocate program is looking for compassionate, caring volunteers to be the “voices of children”. If you love children and have the time to help ensure that the children in our counties have a safe, happy home, we need your help.
We'll make sure you're equipped for the task!
