About VOICES for Alabama’s Children

Our Background

VOICES for Alabama’s Children, founded in 1992, is a 501(c)(3) statewide nonpartisan organization whose mission is to ensure the well-being of Alabama’s children through research, public awareness, and advocacy. Alabama Kids Count is a project of VOICES for Alabama’s Children with major funding from the Annie E. Casey Foundation. Our annual research publication, the Alabama Kids Count Data Book, is the most trusted source of research on child well-being for all 67 counties in Alabama. For more than 20 years, the Data Book has served as both a benchmark and roadmap for how children are faring and is used to raise visibility of children’s issues, identify areas of need, set priorities in child well-being and inform decision-making at the state and local levels.

Students from pre-K and beyond from all over Alabama come to Montgomery to advocate for policies that matter most to them during the annual Kids Count Rally.
