Learn More About the Voices’ Team and Operations
Since 2004, Suncoast Voices for Children has worked within the Child Protection Investigators’ offices to meet the unmet needs of abused and neglected children. Voices was founded by two concerned child advocates that saw the unmet needs of the many vulnerable children involved in the foster care system, so they set up Voices to meet needs immediately when they are identified by the Sheriff’s Office and other community partners to both serve children in foster care and to safely keep kids out of foster care with protective family members. Voices’ Board of Directors has over 300 years of combined experience serving at-risk and abused and neglected children as judges, advocates, teachers, nurses and mentors. Executive Director Andrew Maurin has more than 10 years of experience in child welfare and serves an attorney for children and young adults in foster care in Pinellas and Pasco Counties.
