We work on a very simple premise...

Every Child should have the Opportunity to Thrive

 At the Children’s Law Center, our team wears many hats…


We advocate for children and youth in courtrooms and classrooms across Colorado so that young people have what they need to thrive, despite past experiences of trauma or instability.


We collaborate with government agencies, nonprofit partners, and other supporters, taking action around shared goals to bring positive change to our communities.


We create change by building relationships, amplifying the voices of young people, and pushing for policy and practice reform.

“From the start, the Children’s Law Center had the determination of ‘Whatever it Takes’ for our case.  They were professional, communicated ideas and strategies with us. I felt they knew and understood what our family was going through, and came along side of us and we persevered together.


They were wonderful and we were truly lucky to have them represent us!”

Our Promises

Here's what we stand on

We promise the children, youth, and families we serve that we will listen to their needs and tirelessly advocate to secure safety, stability, connection, and opportunity on their behalf.

We promise our partners that we will show up as true allies who take the time to know the populations we serve and the challenges they face, who reflect on our own role within systems, and who work collaboratively to resolve complex social issues.

We promise our donors that we will be resourceful in our programming, carefully steward their contributions, and seek to maximize every dollar in serving young people and their families.
