girl-readingWe see firsthand what happens when a boy who is struggling in school finally gets help. Or when a girl is reunited with her sisters, after being shuffled from one foster family to another. Or when a child with asthma moves out of an apartment filled with toxic mold.

Put simply: their lives are transformed. That’s what happens when you never give up – and use every tool you have to help a child reach his or her full potential.

You can change the course of a child’s life today.

We couldn’t do our work without the generosity of donors like you. Together we have ensured that thousands of children live fuller, happier lives – but there are so many more children who need our help.

We invite you to support Children’s Law Center with a tax-deductible contribution today.

We promise to be effective, efficient, and passionate stewards of your gift. In fact, 89 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to programs that serve DC's children.

If you have questions, please reach out to Chief Development Officer Brian Shook at 202-467-4900 ext. 583 or bshook@childrenslawcenter.org for more information.

I cannot put a price tag on how valuable CLC's help was when my son’s adoption was in jeopardy… and so I’ve decided I need to give back and invest in you as a resource for other families.

Transforming the Lives of DC Children Imagine a child in trouble. Do you picture a student suspended for disruptive behavior? A toddler left alone by his mother? A teenager who has life-threatening asthma attacks in the middle of the night? These are among the troubles children in the District face every day. In the pages of this annual report, you will read about Darren Pegram, Akhil Medley and Laila Rodriguez, who are among the thousands of children and families Children’s Law Center fought for in 2016. Our work helped transform their lives.
