Message from the Executive Director

January 31, 2018

Thanks to your support, in 2017 CLC moved into our new child-centered, youth-friendly office headquarters;

Thanks to your support, over 17,000 infants and toddlers were visited by CLC social work investigators in their homes; and

Thanks to your support, mental health advocacy was provided to over 350 clients to prevent unnecessary hospitalizations and the overuse of psychotropic medications. 

Sadly, though, many of our young clients are in need of your help this year more than ever. Due to dramatic changes in state law, unprecedented numbers of foster children are living with loving caregivers – grandparents, friends, relatives – who are unable to afford to buy the most basic necessities. These caring families are struggling while they wait months on end to be approved for funding because of the changes in the law. The amount of requests we are currently receiving for emergency assistance because of this crisis situation is overwhelming. Your help can make all the difference.

In this new year, we look forward to working together to help these families in need, and to continue building hope for thousands of abused and neglected children in our community. To support our critical work, please visit our website:

Thank you for your continued support, and may 2018 bring you health and happiness.
