Who We Are
The JustChildren Program works to increase opportunities for all children in the Commonwealth to be successful in their schools and their communities. At the JustChildren Program, we believe that whenever the government assumes responsibility for the care of a child - whether in the educational system, the foster care system or the juvenile justice system - the result should be that the child's chances for success in life are improved, not damaged. We use direct representation, education and organizing outreach, and state-level advocacy to achieve positive outcomes for our clients. With innovative approaches, the attorneys and community educators on the JustChildren team are successfully addressing many of the systemic problems that are roadblocks for these children to get out of poverty.
