THE CHILDREN WE SERVE
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.
