LSC’s mission is to ensure that all children and youth in San Francisco Bay Area have an opportunity to be raised in a safe environment with equal access to a meaningful education and the services and supports they need to become healthy and productive young adults. LSC pioneered a unique interdisciplinary approach to legal services, employing teams of attorneys and social workers to comprehensively meet the needs of our clients.
LSC’s team advocacy approach enables us to provide a wide spectrum of services. We represent children and youth in cases that include legal guardianship, dependency, school discipline, immigration, emancipation, and restraining order proceedings.
Supporting the work of our in-house attorneys and social workers, a panel of pro bono attorneys provides over 3,000 hours per year of free legal assistance and advocacy to our clients.
