Since 1992, we have served over 100,000 children, providing them with permanency through adoption and legal guardianship, access to healthcare and an equitable education.  Our efforts are focused in three main areas:

  • Free legal services and advocacy for children in poverty and in foster care
  • Training and education for those who work with or care for these children
  • System-wide reform to change policies to improve children’s lives

We cut through the bureaucracy of the courts, medical offices, school districts and government agencies for children who don’t have parents to advocate on their behalf. Our staff and extensive network of pro bono attorneys advocate directly for individual children, in addition to working for broader policy reform to:

  • Expedite adoptions
  • Secure medical coverage and therapies for children
  • Obtain educational services for children with learning delays and behavioral issues
  • Assist youth aging out of foster care to become productive and self-reliant
