Children, Youth & Families

Strong and supported families empower children and youth to grow, thrive, and become the future leaders of our communities, organizations, and nation.

Public Counsel fights for the dignity of children, youth, and families through direct legal services, community-led local policy work, impact litigation, and legal support for child care providers. We believe that the investments our society makes to strengthen families today will empower children and youth to lead our communities and organizations tomorrow.  We use a multi-disciplinary approach to legal advocacy and work to remove legal barriers for children, youth, families, and communities of color most impacted by systemic racism and economic injustice.
