We're here to help

TC Schuttler


TC founded For Those Without A Voice in 2003. Since moving to Arizona more than thirty years ago, she has devoted her life to improving the lives of children and animals who are in dire need of assistance. When not working to better the lives of others, TC will typically be found relishing her role as a doting mother and grandmother.

Shari Miller


During the last decade Shari has been a tireless advocate for many non-profit organizations and charities, though still regards her most important function as that of a loving mother and devoted wife.



Gina has worked with For Those Without A Voice for several years. She is passionate about helping children and animals around the world.
