The Project

Through LAMMP, I will provide dependent and delinquent teen mothers with holistic direct representation, systemic relief through litigation and education. I will represent teen moms on issues such as dependency hearings, family law and child support, domestic violence injunctions, and more. Systemically, I will provide relief to teen moms aging out of foster care and advocate for dependency placements that effectively meet the needs of the teen mother and child. Lastly, I will provide advocacy literature to teen moms and service providers.
