Advocate for a Safe, Permanent Home for All Children

Imagine you are a child again. You have been abused and neglected, and soon, a Family Court Judge will decide where you will live. You have never felt so alone and you need someone to help by being your voice in court.

Each year hundreds of Fulton and Montgomery county children suffer substantiated cases of child abuse or neglect.

Every day, these children enter the child protective system which works with families, foster parents, and treatment providers to ensure their safety.
