Mission Statement

We advocate for children and youth, drive systemic reform, and boldly challenge the status quo so that every young person who has experienced trauma or instability has the opportunity to thrive.

Organization History

The Children's Law Center opened its doors in 1982 to provide quality legal representation for children who had experienced abuse or neglect. Since that time, our organization has grown and shifted to meet the many unmet needs of Colorado's children and families who have experienced trauma and instability. Our programs focus on advocacy across the spectrum of childhood - from birth all the way to young adulthood - and we do that through two key strategies: direct legal advocacy with multidisciplinary supports AND systemic reform. We serve children who have witnessed domestic violence between their parents; those whose trauma is impacting their educational success or leading to school discipline concerns; those being cared for by relatives and other kin; those who have trouble regulating their behaviors; and those needing support as they transition out of foster care or experience homelessness.

In courtrooms and community rooms, the Children's Law Center has always been the bold voice speaking for youth, eliminating barriers and insisting on urgency, while discovering or creating innovative options. We are the only agency of our kind in Colorado and remain one of the state's most respected and effective leaders serving children, youth, and families. In 2016, we were honored by the Colorado Women's Chamber of Commerce as the "Nonprofit of the Year." Since its inception, the Children's Law Center has positively impacted over 26,000 of Colorado's most vulnerable children. We continue to assess the needs of the populations we serve and strive to fill the gaps that exist in our communities.

Testimonials

"The Children's Law Center staff, especially Kacie Mulhern, is knowledgeable, thorough and perceptive when addressing the best interest of a vulnerable child, but they are also mindful of the feelings and vulnerabilities of the adults involved." - Carolyn Jones, Caregiver Advocacy Program client


"The Children's Law Center is helping Voices for Children to train CASA volunteers to be educational advocates for abused and neglected children. They have helped CASAs to advocate on behalf of youth in truancy court experiencing school pushout. Thanks to them, the kids we serve stand a better chance at getting the education they deserve." - Nia Wassink, Executive Director Voices For Children CASA


"When our daughter passed away leaving three children behind, the Children's Law Center came to our rescue. They provided endless support, guidance and legal expertise. Gloria was our lifesaver and we are eternally grateful." - Marti, Caregiver Advocacy Program client


"RMCLC has been a great partner in courtroom 170. They have made the process for the court as well as victims figuring out what is best for the children go smoothly. Victims' tend to feel comfortable with the GALS. They also feel better with the help of RMCLC when temporary orders are placed and are agreed because they have a plan until a district court puts in orders." - Mireya with Project Safeguard
