About Us

We are a program of the NC court system and we train and supervise volunteer advocates for children experiencing abuse, neglect, and foster care in McDowell County. Our volunteer advocates give these children a voice in the courtroom and help to ensure every child has a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.
