Voices for Children Advocacy Center

Voices  for Children Advocacy Center We are dedicated to serving the victims and families of child abuse in and enhancing the lives of all children through treatment, education & advocacy.
Our center serves as a voice and an advocate for children throughout Flint and Genesee County. Our center is the result of a merger of Weiss Child Advocacy Center and Priority Children. Voices for Children Advocacy Center will focus on (1) child victims of child abuse and neglect and their families (including human trafficking), (2) prevention services for children in Genesee County, and (3) advocating for the well-being of the child.
(46)

The Weiss Advocacy Center is a merged 501 (c) (3) organization that brought together two well-established and highly respected child welfare agencies in Genesee County: the Consortium on Child Abuse and Neglect (C/CAN), and the Child Advocacy Center (CAC). C/CAN was established in 1974 to advocate against child abuse and neglect. During the last thirty-five years C/CAN has established a variety of education and prevention programs for the community to help change the child welfare system and prevent abuse. The Child Advocacy Center was established to provide a place for children to tell their stories in a safe, friendly environment, with a single adult who can compassionately listen, examine, and ask the necessary questions.

Mission: Voices for Children Advocacy Center is dedicated to serving the child victims and families of child abuse in Genesee County and enhancing the lives of all children through treatment, education and by increasing community awareness

Today, we are grateful for companies like Better Made Snack Foods who donated chips to our pantry for children to enjoy when they come to our center. Providing them with treats that they enjoy is just one of the ways that we try to make our kids feel more comfortable at the big blue house. If you know of or work for a business who is interested in donating snacks to our kids, please reach out to [email protected].

Today's #ThankfulNovember post goes out to our canine advocate Deputy Daphne! 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. She reduces anxiety, is a great listener, and brings joy to the children we work with. We love you, Daph!

We are thankful for our Court Appointed Special Advocates who give children in foster care a voice in the court room.
CASA volunteers listen first. Then they act. They are advocates for children (newborn to 18 years of age) who are in the juvenile court system due to allegations of abuse and neglect. These are the most vulnerable children in our city. The CASA volunteer gets to know the child by talking with everyone in that child’s life: parents and relatives, foster parents, teachers, medical professionals, attorneys, social workers and others. They use the information they gather to inform judges and others of what the child needs and what will be the best permanent home for them. Independent research has demonstrated that children with a CASA volunteer are substantially less likely to spend time in long-term foster care and less likely to reenter care

If you are interested in becoming a Court Appointed Special Advocate, reach out to [email protected].

Today's #thankfulnovember shoutout goes to Cause & Affect Gallery who've chosen Voices for Children to be the recipients of a portion of their sales this quarter. Their donation will be used to support our Art Therapy program.

"Cause & Affect Gallery began as a need to find space to accommodate a friend who is differently abled in order to take a class in silversmithing. After searching for awhile, the current location was found. The gallery is accessible to all and our classroom space is adaptable for people of differing needs. Inclusion of all is very important to us. The gallery name speaks to what we do. We take various causes and want to make an affect in the greater community. This is done by donating a portion of all of our sales to non-profits."

Visit and 'LIKE' their page to learn more about ways that you can get involved in their classes, visit their gallery, and support their mission to make a positive impact on the Genesee County community.

Thank you, Cause & Affect Gallery for supporting our children!

General information

Our Center works in conjunction with many other entities such as law enforcement and the Department of Health and Human Services. The organization has a direct impact on society’s ability to prosecute and punish child abusers. Local law enforcement representatives say that the current system improves chances of conviction by at least 50%. The Center saves children’s lives. Although the system continually tries to protect them, children do literally die of abuse and neglect. However, life for an abused child can be a fate almost worse than death. Children who are shuttled from one home to another, separated from parents and siblings, lost in the child welfare maze, do not become healthy, well-adjusted, well-educated and successful adults. Instead, they have a disturbingly high incidence of depression, suicide, unwanted pregnancy, unemployment, and welfare dependence. Ultimately, many of them repeat the cycle and abuse their own children because they have never known anything different. The Center throws a monkey wrench into that cycle of abuse. Their caring and compassionate intervention can stabilize children long enough for them to begin healing. They can truly help victims of child abuse become children again. In the process, their support helps parents learn new patterns of behavior, and new ways to cope with the frustrations that are often a precursor to abuse.
