Our Family Advocate helps you and your child access the services and resources that are available such as counseling, medical attention, support groups, food, shelter, help with court, finding an interpreter, and more. Download forms and find information about support groups below, or Email our Family Advocate Megan Bryant. 

Court Accompaniment and Canine Advocacy

Our Family Advocate handles Loki, our Canine Advocate!

Loki joined Small Talk in 2020. He helps children to feel confident during court and comforts them when they visit Small Talk. You can keep up with Loki on Instagram @smalltalk_loki or join Loki's Club to provide steady support to courageous children. 

You might remember our previous canine advocate, Preston. He went to work at the Kent County Children's Advocacy Center where he continues to help kids!
