What are Child Advocates?
A child advocate is a professional who represents the best interests regarding the rights and protections of children. Child advocates seek justice and ensure that children are receiving adequate care- educationally, emotionally, mentally, socially, and physically. Child advocates may work with one child or a group of children in need.
Where do child advocates work?
