While navigating the complicated layers of the child welfare system, my wife and I learned about CLC and their incredible advocacy for youth in foster care. We support CLC because we are passionate about making contributions that will last and will impact as many children as possible. The unfortunate fact is that CLC’s clients have so many unmet needs, and they need your help to reach the tens of thousands of youth they represent.

A $2500 Gift

Children’s Law Center of California’s multidisciplinary advocacy enables the nonprofit law firm to protect and promote the well-being of its clients, especially those in need of urgent involvement. CLC offers intensive care and support for young parents and those about to become parents in foster care. Through relational legal advocacy, its new prevention project can address obstacles that may arise for a young parent. From securing diapers and blankets to helping parents set up childcare or other support, CLC strives to prevent more children and families from entering the foster care system. As of July, this project served nearly 170 clients. Your gift of $2,500 would help CLC expand this vital program, helping to break the foster care cycle, one young family at a time.
