Children's Law Center envisions a future in which every child in the District of Columbia has a solid foundation of family, health and education. We work toward this vision by providing legal services to at-risk children and their families and by using the knowledge we gain from representing our individual clients to advocate for changes in the law and its implementation. Our practice focuses on children who face instability as a result of abuse, neglect or extreme parental conflict, as well as children with special education or health needs.
Holistic Representation. We focus on the whole person, not just the legal problem.
Impact. We approach our work with a sense of urgency and make a big difference by taking small steps.
Creativity. We develop innovative solutions to the challenges we face.
Teamwork. We work with our clients, staff members, and allies to meet our clients' needs.
Tenacity. We do not give up.
Respect. We value the diverse skills and experiences that our staff members bring to their work.
"...you’ve got a great group of folks working at the CLC! They have really enriched the advocacy community ... and made a great difference for our children."
