Detail of Services

Legal Services

We provide legal representation to abused and neglected children - ages 0-21 - in Baltimore City, Baltimore, Anne Arundel, Howard, Carroll, Cecil and Frederick Counties. Our representation includes attending Family Involvement meetings, mental health treatment team meetings, special education meetings; juvenile delinquency and misdemeanor adult criminal justice system representation and/ or advocacy; and legal representation and/or advocacy for child victims in criminal cases.

Human Right to Healthy Development Project – Concerned with the over-use of psychotropic drugs on foster care children, we have been collecting data since 2007 on the type and numbers of psychotropic drugs prescribed to our clients, the effect, and the mental health diagnoses assigned to each psychotropic drug. Our advocacy includes challenging the prolonged use of psychotropic drugs and the effects it has on our clients.

Black Female Legal Representation Project (2011 - 2015) – This special legal representation project was created in 2011 for our young, Black female clients out of deep concern for the often ignored needs of young, Black women – precipitated by the lack of understanding of the challenges these young women face. We focused on Baltimore City youth who crossed the foster care, juvenile delinquency, adult criminal justice, and mental health systems, and who may have had educational challenges. This project provided legal representation, frequent attorney contact, and mentorship.

Policy Advocacy

We advocate for the human rights of marginalized children and adults on the state, national, and global levels. Our recent work includes, contributions to the passage of laws in Maryland related to education stability and child consultations by judicial officers for foster care children; advocacy in Washington, DC for policy and legislative changes for incarcerated parents and their children; and advocacy for the human rights of children to healthy development and self-determination, internationally.
