How Does CLC Create Permanent Families?
Children’s Law Center provides free, high-quality legal assistance to foster parents, grandparents, and other relatives who wish to adopt or obtain guardianship or custody of children trapped in the child welfare system or at risk of entering foster care.
Children’s Law Center also represents children in custody cases when their family stability is threatened by domestic violence, allegations of abuse or high conflict between their parents.
CLC’s staff attorneys cannot, alone, represent all of the families in need. In order to help more children find stability and permanence, Children’s Law Center recruits, trains and mentors volunteer attorneys from area law firms to represent children in complex custody cases and caregivers in adoption, guardianship and custody cases.

The Children’s Law Center also helps children find permanent families by representing children directly. Learn more about how we help children in foster care.
As a mental health professional, it’s a pleasure to work with Children’s Law Center because of their attention to the full spectrum of a child and family’s needs. I rely on CLC attorneys to provide background and insight.
Meaningful adult relationships are often few and far between for many of the children I see in neglect and abuse cases. It speaks volumes to me when a troubled adolescent names a CLC attorney as someone they trust.
CLC’s attorneys go above and beyond to understand the mental health aspects of their cases.
