We’ve always helped children and families weather the storms that roll in and out of their lives, but the pandemic was a massive storm that hit all of us at once. With that storm, the calls came in – from parents, community partners, DC agency leaders, DC Councilmembers – each time asking our help to solve problems as they emerged.
Inside our 2020 Annual Report you’ll read how our 25 years of experience prepared us to respond rapidly to solve problems child by child and family by family while also finding city-wide solutions.
But we didn’t do it alone. Thankfully, the entire Children’s Law Center family stepped up – donors who doubled and tripled their gifts and allies working together to tackle each challenge one-by-one.
As we look ahead, many challenges will persist: learning loss, access to mental health supports, housing instability. They are problems we’ve solved for 25 years, and – with your partnership and support – we will continue solving every day.
