Child Advocates has been helping Houston's abused children since 1984.
“Those who say that we’re in a time when there are no heroes, they just don’t know where to look.”
– Ronald Reagan
Our advocate volunteers’ main job is to provide the court with recommendations about where the children they represent should live on a permanent basis. Throughout the case, our volunteers maintain contact with everyone involved in the children’s lives, from foster parents, biological parents and therapists to Child Protective Services caseworkers and attorneys appointed by the court. They make sure the children are receiving the medical and psychological help they need, and they meet with teachers and principals to help the children thrive in school. They dry tears and give hugs and throw birthday parties, too. Most importantly, they serve as a 'constant' person for the children to count on during this tumultuous time. Essentially, our volunteers do whatever it takes to ensure that the needs of the children are being met while they are in care.
“Superheroes and heroes come in all sizes and shapes. Unfortunately, so do kids who are abused or neglected. This event is important to MRE because we care. We don't just invest in growing our company -- we invest in our community. Plain as that.”
-Shane Merz, M.R.E. Consulting
