About Voices for Virginia’s Children

Voices for Virginia’s Children is a statewide, privately funded, non-partisan policy research and advocacy organization that champions policies and practices that improve the lives of children. A recognized leader in child advocacy, Voices advances our initiatives by conducting research, developing policies and supporting materials, leading issue campaigns and coalitions, and generating a groundswell of support statewide for positive children’s policy in Virginia.

We are also the only statewide policy organization working specifically on issues related to foster care/child welfare, and give particular attention to how those areas intersect with health and health care. FosteringHealthVA is a project of Voices for Virginia’s Children made possible through our partnerships with The Annie E. Casey Foundation, First Focus, and The Children and Family Legacy Fund. We are also thankful to Children Now and the Juvenile Law Center for assistance with this project.

Note: Voices for Virginia’s Children maintains FosteringHealthVA, and can help answer questions and connect youth to enrollment assistance, but we do not directly enroll youth in Medicaid coverage.
