Legal Representation and Advocacy for Youth in Foster Care

Your support is vital to the 800 youth in foster care, CLC represents everyday.

Giving generously today positively impacts kids who are going through some of the roughest times of their lives and like the rest of us, facing the reality of the ongoing global pandemic. Kids, like Stefanie.

Stefanie's Story:  Stefanie was adopted this spring, after a very challenging time. Although adoptions are still on ZOOM, her entire class attended the adoption, and her attorney had never seen so many supporters at one adoption. 

Your donation today gives children like Stefanie an advocate, when they most need someone by their side.

CHALLENGE GRANT: This year we also have a Challenge Grant from the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation in the amount of $10,000. We need to raise $10,000 by December 31, 2021 from donors like you! The following criteria applies: 


  • New donors!
  • New gifts from donors who haven’t given in 24 months or more
  • Annual giving increase from current CLC donor 

Your generosity supports Minnesota’s most vulnerable children and youth. Thank you!

COVID-19 Impact on Youth in Foster Care

Because of COVID-19, the economic crisis, and America’s reckoning with racial justice, our young clients’ lives have changed drastically. Social services and healthcare are harder to access, youth have experienced delayed adoptions, and just the day to day of knowing what’s next is gone. 

For 26 years, CLC has given a voice to the most forgotten and invisible children who need stability and care, especially during the current unprecedented situation.  CLC continues to persist in this mission in spite of almost daily changes to court procedures. 

Please consider making a one-time gift, recurring donation, or contact Amanda Finman-Palmer to make a legacy commitment. Your generosity supports Minnesota’s most vulnerable children and youth. Thank you for your compassion!
