Mission Statement

Our mission is to advocate justice on behalf of the families in the child welfare system.

Description

The Family Defense Center ("FDC") is an award-winning first-of-its-kind legal advocacy organization focused on reform of child protection systems (e.g., the Department of Children and Family Services, juvenile court), including, in particular, child protection investigations. The FDC employs multi-faceted litigation and other advocacy strategies to prevent the unnecessary removal of children from their homes and to facilitate the return of children to their homes whenever possible.
