When it comes to kids, we never quit

We are dedicated to serving Colorado’s abused, neglected and at-risk children.

Champion 100%


The best interest of the kids

Our diverse programs all exist to make sure the best interest of kids is being represented. The resiliency of kids inspires us to continue to do more as they become the heroes of their stories.


To Build Stronger Communities

The old adage, “it takes a village to raise a child,” is proven true in the lives of the kids we work with every day. Our collaborations create stronger communities, which in turn raise healthier kids.


For systemic change

When it comes to kids, the status quo isn’t good enough. By working to change policies and laws affecting kids, we improve the lives of kids now and the lives of countless kids to come.

Non-Profit Of The Year Award

In September 2016, The Children’s Law Center was selected out of 100 outstanding non-profits to receive the prestigious Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce “Non-Profit of the Year” award. This award recognizes a non-profit/community organization that has made a significant contribution to the overall health and livability of Denver. For over three decades, the Children’s Law Center has fought for the best interests of kids both in and out of the courtroom to help them achieve a higher quality of life. The Children’s Law Center has a longstanding reputation at the Colorado State Capitol as a thought leader on kid’s issues, and it has been at the forefront of influencing non-partisan legislation for the best interests of kids at the local, state, and national level.

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.
