Council for Children's Rights
The Council’s mission is to stand for every child’s right to be safe, healthy and educated. Council fulfills its mission by providing legal representation and advocacy for individual children in peril; engaging our community to work with us to reform the systems serving children and to adopt public policies based in researched best practices to address the needs and futures of our children; and by collaborating with community partners to achieve cooperative solutions to the critical issues affecting our children. The Council’s lawyers and advocates work primarily in the areas of education, abuse and neglect, health, mental health, contested custody, domestic violence and juvenile justice. However, the Council will consider representing any child in danger or whose right to receive services is threatened. We serve all children regardless of their socioeconomic status.
