Legal services are a frequent need for clients that contact Justice for Children. Keeping their child safe from an abuser may require protective orders, divorce from an abuser, the need to establish or modify child custody and, many times, child support. Many of the victimized children we work with are the product of unmarried parents creating a need for the establishment of paternity. These clients lack the monetary resources to hire attorneys. The abuse of their child and lack of immediate resources to access services desperately places them in a crisis mode and highly emotional making the process even more daunting to them.
To raise the consciousness of our society about the failure of our governmental agencies to protect victims of child abuse, to provide legal advocacy for abused children and to develop and implement, on a collaborative basis where possible, a full range of solutions that enhance the quality of life for these children.
Justice for Children is a 501(c)(3) independent non-profit organization founded in 1987. We advocate for, and intervene on behalf of children who are confirmed victims of abuse and are un-served or under-served by various protective agencies. Justice for Children is the only organization that advocates for children victimized by "system failure"; children who have fallen through the cracks of the existing child protective network of governmental agencies, including CPS, law enforcement, district attorneys' offices, and the civil and criminal courts.
