Children’s Law Center fights so every child in DC can grow up with a loving family, good health and a quality education.

Healthy Together Build Health Family Outreach Worker

Children’s Law Center fights so every District child can grow up with a loving family, good health and a quality education. Judges, pediatricians and families turn to us to advocate for children who are abused or neglected, who aren’t learning in school, or who have health problems that can’t be solved by medicine alone. With 85 staff and hundreds of pro bono lawyers, we reach 1 out of every 9 children in DC’s poorest neighborhoods – more than 5,000 children and families each year. And, we multiply this impact by advocating for city-wide solutions that benefit all children. Learn more at childrenslawcenter.org.

CLC’s Healthy Together is a medical-legal partnership for DC’s children. CLC partners with Children’s National Health System, Mary’s Center and Unity Health Care to help vulnerable children and their families overcome barriers to good health by holding agencies, landlords, and schools accountable for inappropriate school programs, the failure to provide medically necessary services, and illegal, unhealthy housing conditions.

Build Health DC is a collaborative effort among Children’s National’s IMPACT DC, CLC and DC Department of Health focused on the intersection of housing conditions and pediatric asthma in DC.
