Our Resource Parent Support Group
The Voice of Choice is the dynamic and fast growing Resource Parent's Support Group representing all the families of The Children's Choice. This group evolved from a Parent's Advisory Board that was started at the invitation of Drs. Bill and Carolyn Eberwein almost 10 years ago with a mandate to give Resource Parents a voice at the corporate level.
Today we are excited to be representing and serving families in PA, MD, DE, and NJ.
The VOC is comprised of elected representatives and alternates who meet at the Bellmawr training office quarterly. William (Web) Eberwein, President & Chief Executive Officer, regularly attends these meetings and acts as an intermediary between Children's Choice and the VOC. The membership is a cross section of Resource Parents and includes kinship, foster and adoptive families. One of the most important functions at a VOC meeting is the Representatives Forum, in which reps can exchange questions, concerns and ideas. Following are just a few of the many ongoing programs and activities of the VOC:
Board of Directors
The sitting VOC President is appointed a seat on the Agency's Board of Directors as a full voting member.
& PEER INTERACTION
We believe that being a resource parent is a journey that one must not travel alone. The Voice of Choice exists to facilitate relationships between new and veteran resource parents so that they are mutually encouraged and equipped.
The training component of the VOC’s mission helps to ensure resource parents stay up to date on the latest information.
Abuse Allegations Training
The VOC has produced a video to help educate families about the process of abuse allegations. VOC reps are available as a support resource for families who may be going through this difficult experience.
There are many more projects than we can list here, so we invite you to talk to your local rep, or come out to a meeting and join us to learn more! Upcoming meeting dates can be obtained through your VOC Rep or Program Coordinator.
Can't wait to see you there!
