Center for Children's Defense Need Help?

We are our community's leading voice for children's rights. We are 30 highly trusted attorneys, advocates and professional staff who are dedicated to serving children and connecting them to vital services.


Thousands of children in our community are falling through the cracks. Many of these children are terrorized by physical and sexual abuse, neglect, domestic violence and substance abuse. These vulnerable children do not have a safe home, an appropriate education or mental health treatment to give them a fighting chance.

The children we serve fall in every major child-serving system. They have histories of abuse and neglect, special education issues, mental and physical health issues. They are involved in custody disputes and come from homes with domestic violence. They become involved with the juvenile justice system.

The systems charged with serving them are complex, overburdened and unresponsive. These children have no voice, no champion to ensure their ability to thrive. The Council for Children's Rights is that voice.
