makes a huge difference for a teen like 13-year-old Samira who is now able to meet with her mental health therapist virtually after the pandemic prevented her from going in person.
helps reunite a child, like 6-month-old Duane, with his mom after she receives therapy and parenting classes to overcome post-partum depression.
allows a child, like 6-year-old Rosa, say “mama” for first time after she receives critical speech therapy for her recently-diagnosed learning disability.
helps a child, like 9-year-old Javier, relocate with his mom and baby sister from an apartment with lead paint that is causing developmental delays in both children to a safe, healthy home.
[The Housing Authority] kept telling me I was at the top of the list for a new home, but it was hard to not lose hope. Thankfully, I didn’t stop fighting and neither did Children’s Law Center."

For more than 24 years Children’s Law Center has served as an anchor institution for the District’s children and families. In order to make sure Children’s Law Center is always there for DC’s children, several visionary donors stepped up and collectively invested over $1 million in the Children Can’t Wait Fund.
Looking ahead we know the Children Can’t Wait Fund will be integral to helping us navigate an increasingly volatile funding environment and allowing us to build a brighter future where all of DC’s children can thrive.
