The Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center (RMCLC) was founded in 1981 and its mission is to advocate for children and youth. The organization seeks to drive systemic reform, and boldly challenge the status quo so that every young person who has experienced trauma or instability has the opportunity to thrive. But the RMCLC goes far beyond providing legal services, and they believe all areas of a child’s life are intertwined and their work reflects this integration. The work of the RMCLC involves both direct service and systems change, but in each endeavor, legal and clinical services are woven together, focusing on ensuring that trauma-affected children and youth have safe, permanent homes; appropriate education; and the resources to address unmet emotional and physical needs.
