Ashley Brochette is the marketing manager for Child Advocates and Kelly St. Mary is the sponsorship director for McDonald's Houston Children’s Festival. They're celebrating the festival's 30th year on April 7th and 8th. It is the biggest festival of its kind in the country and it's only $10 to buy tickets online: www.houstonchildrensfestival.com.
They have raised over $5 million for Child's Advocates and we hear about their need for volunteers. Child Advocates are trained to work through our court system hand in hand with minors. Advocates also help with making sure the children are getting what they need from their foster homes and schools. They often forge lifelong relationships.
There is much to learn and you can begin on their website: www.childadvocates.org
