I am an attorney in Ohio who is very active in children involved in court systems state wide. Children's Law Center has been a leader in achieving positive systemic change in Ohio. It is embarrassing that the primary advocate for change in Ohio comes from Kentucky.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them more resources

I am a clinical psychologist who works in the family court system on a regular basis. Some of my cases are the most heart wrenching, undercarriages of justice imaginable. When children are abused, our society MUST act to protect them and give them a shot at a better life. Time and time again, I have seen the very systems designed to help children, hurt them. Time and time again, there has been no justice in our justice system for children.

In these cases and in the most intractable situations, helping professionals become fatigued, frustrated and then, sadly, lose hope that anything can or will change. There is nothing more demoralizing than having to sit with a child and tell him/her that there is nothing left that anyone can do to help.

Such despair and injustice is thankfully never faced by the children represented by the Children's Law Center. The legal team at CLC stops at nothing to ensure the rights of their young clients. The staff at the Children's Law Center go above and beyond in their work. They make a personal investment in the life of each child passing through their doors.


Through direct advocacy and policy level change, the Children's Law Center promote the idea that every child is a wonderful gift to cherish. In turn, the Children's Law Center is also a wonderful gift to cherish, now and for many years to come.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

If only they had more resources to help more children!

My experience volunteering at the Children's Law Center was very rewarding. It allowed me to feel like I could be a part of making a difference in the lives of children, help be a voice for those who don't have one, and work with an amazing group of people. The staff at Children's Law Center is so personable and caring. Children's Law Center offers a wide variety of ways to volunteer.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do more to promote the services offered by Children's Law Center.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

The Children's Law Center offers exceptional services to children who find themselves caught up in the juvenile justice system. The Center engages in addressing systemic problems inherent in the application of laws affecting juveniles in our region. The staff is highly knowledgable, trained and fearless when tackling tough juvenile justice issues.
The Center offers practicing attorneys valuable training for improving the delivery of defense services to juveniles. Center staff is always available to answer questions and offer real solutions to problematic and complex juvenile justice issues.
I highly recommend their services to all (including children, parents, courts, caseworkers and attorneys) who are devoted to protecting the legal rights of children.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them an office in Ohio.
