VOICES also works to raise awareness of abuse and domestic violence in the community. Staff educate children in ways to protect themselves from unsafe people and situations and provide presentations on these issues tailored to anyone from business owners to clergy.
All services are confidential and free of charge.
The VOICES Book Nook is not only an essential source of funding, but the in-kind donation of time by the volunteer staff counts toward the match for matching grants from foundations and government agencies. Without these volunteer hours and the store profit they generate, approximately $469,000 in grant funds would be lost each year.
