Believe in Children

“All kids need is
a little help,
a little hope, and
somebody who believes in them.”

Ervin “Magic” Johnson

Help For Children & Families

We are committed to helping children and families find the support and resources they need when they are facing a wide range of challenges.

Get Involved -- Volunteer

We get by with more than a little help from our friends.  Looking for volunteers – attorneys and non-attorneys – to give a little of yourself and your time to make a real difference.

If we don’t stand up for children,

then we don’t stand for much.
