Legal Services for Children
Founded in 1975, Legal Services for Children provides free legal representation to low-income children and youth. LSC serves children and youth who require legal assistance to stabilize their lives and realize their full potential. Through a unique team approach utilizing legal advocacy and social work services, our objective is to empower children and actively involve them in critical decisions about their lives. Our commitment is to ensure that every child in the San Francisco Bay Area has an opportunity to be raised in a safe environment with equal access to the services he/she needs. We provide holistic advocacy to children in cases involving abuse, neglect, sexual assault, homelessness, emancipation, guardianship, immigration, mental health, special education and school discipline.
