Families & Criminal Justice has a great and on-going need for legal assistance.

Mental Health & Social Workers
Licensed infant mental health, mental health and social workers are needed to provide pro bono therapeutic services for one child each year.
Families & Criminal Justice is also seeking the assistance of financial experts like bankers, accountants and educators to make presentations on family finances to participants in our services. We can also use the help of consumer advocates for this purpose.
