Legal Representation for Foster Children
Thrust into the throes of adulthood with little support to fall back on, it is easy to misstep along the way to self-sufficiency. Youth who age out of foster care are like all youth, but sometimes need help as they're unwinding the consequences of uninformed or poor choices. FosterAdopt Connect’s legal advocacy team connects current or former foster youth with attorney representation to aid with minor legal issues, which then frequently become barriers to living a healthy and fulfilling life.
Removing Legal Roadblocks
The legal advocacy team provides representation in the areas of:
- Traffic violations
- Landlord/tenant concerns
- Other minor criminal infractions
Because current and many former foster children do not have the personal resources or supportive parents to help get them out of trouble, the legal advocacy support is essential. Community members can donate or volunteer skilled time to support our young clients.
