The Project

This project will serve indigent parents involved in the child protective system.  I will address mental health issues within families that can lead to unnecessary foster care placements and the termination of parental rights. Through direct representation, the development of resource materials for practitioners and legislative advocacy, this project aims to keep families together by assisting parents in obtaining appropriate and timely mental health services.
