Review for Advocates for Bartow's Children, Inc., Cartersville, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I always knew that Advocates had a children's shelter, but it was after I attended the Advo 101 Breakfast that I began to understand EVERYTHING Advocates for Bartow's Children does in this community. From the First Steps Program, to A Better Way Children's Advocacy Center, to their VolunTeen program and everything in between, Advocates truly helps all youth in this community. It's been an honor and a priviledge to volunteer for Advocates for Children and help raise awareness and finanical support for this outstanding community organization. It's a shame more people don't volunteer their time and/or donate funds to continue to help the organization grow and help even MORE children in need.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Simply being around the children who have benefited from the services of Advocates. It's terrible to hear some of these young children share what their living conditions were like before they moved into Flowering Branch Children's Shelter, or before they had a CASA. It's wonderful to have an organization like Advocates to help these children. Being able to visit the kids at the Shelter, play games, and cook dinner with them is a rewarding and eye opening experience every time.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Not change a thing!!
