At Children’s Law Center, we see firsthand what happens when a boy struggling in school finally gets help. When a girl being shuffled from one foster family to another is reunited with her sisters, or an asthmatic child living in an apartment full of toxic mold is finally able to move out.

Put simply: their lives are transformed. With the gracious support of individuals, corporations and foundations, we are able to continue working tirelessly to ensure that every child in DC has a stable family, good health and a quality education. We never give up because we know that when our children thrive, so does our community.  

With your support, Children’s Law Center can help transform the lives of even more children and families across DC.

We couldn’t do our work without the generosity of donors like you. Together we have ensured that thousands of children live healthy, stable lives so they can learn and grow – but there are so many more children who still need our help. 

You can help a child thrive. We invite you to support Children’s Law Center with a contribution today.

We promise to be effective, efficient and passionate stewards of your gift. In fact, 80 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to programs that serve DC’s children.
