Our Mission


The mission of the 37th Judicial Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children is to recruit, train, and support volunteers to advocate for every abused or neglected child in state care so that they can be safe, enjoy a permanent home, and have the opportunity to thrive.

Our goal is to stretch beyond today’s numbers in our circuit, where fewer than 25% of children in foster care have an advocate. Our shortage of volunteers is critical.
