The story of Christian Choate gained national and global attention when his body was found in May of this year. Choate, a thirteen-year-old boy from Gary, was a victim of heinous abuse whose life was cut far too short when he passed away in 2009.

Voice of Truth Foundation was recently created, in wake of the Christian Choate tragedy, to help spread awareness of child abuse and raise funds to assist victims. Christian was looking for help, and now in his memory, Voice of Truth is trying to aid other children who are looking for assistance in abusive situations. The foundation looks to spread awareness for child abuse and neglect and focuses on Lake and Porter counties.

"The Voice of Truth Foundation came about because I knew something had to be created to be a voice for similar victims before the abuse starts, before they are too scared to speak up, and before it's too late," said the foundation's founder Nicole Rubalcava. "We plan to raise awareness, help stop abuse and eventually would like to raise money to fund scholarships for abused children." Voice of Truth's mission is to keep children safe and families together and for more information about the Voice of Truth Foundation visit
