About Legal Services for Children (LSC):

We believe that our youth deserve positive alternatives to unnecessary placement in foster care, juvenile justice facilities and immigration detention. LSC pioneered the attorney-social worker interdisciplinary approach that is considered best practice for children and youth who need to access the legal system to stabilize or improve their lives.
