Voices For Children

"Our primary focus is public education to raise awareness about what children need for healthy development. For healthy development, children need good physical health, a safe home and enough to eat. They need warmth and affection from a principle caregiver, a stimulating environment to develop their minds and guidance and encouragement from adults. Children

with those needs met are likely to get along well with others, to be able to learn and solve problems. They can handle stress, have good self-esteem and hope for the future. By transferring knowledge from authorities in the field to the public through its programs and publications, Voices for Children is making the best knowledge about what to do for children available, accessible and applicable."
