Children’s Law Center (CLC) provides free legal representation for children in foster care in Minnesota.
LEGAL ADVOCACY FOR FOSTER CARE YOUTH
Since 1995 Children’s Law Center (CLC) has provided free legal services to Minnesota youth in foster care. With the help of over 300 volunteers and volunteer attorneys, CLC provides these professional legal services to over 580 Minnesota foster children every year. CLC is Minnesota’s only privately funded organization that exclusively represents foster youth. Children have the right to have quality representation, and to have a voice when judges and court workers are making decisions about their lives. In addition to its direct representation work, CLC engages in systemic reform benefiting all of Minnesota’s foster children, and develops educational programming and materials for people involved in the child protection system and for homeless/at risk youth.
FOSTER CHILDREN NEED LAWYERS
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP
Donate today! Children’s Law Center (CLC) does not charge any legal fees to the children it represents. Zero dollars. Donations from individuals, corporations and community groups ensure that CLC will be able to continue providing quality legal representation to foster children in Minnesota. We make the most of our volunteer attorneys, and our staff attorneys are paid a fraction of what the would make at a private law firm. By making a donation, you are helping us help the kids who need it most.
