Legal Advocacy

Hope Pipeline Project

We want to make sure that youth who have contact with the juvenile justice system have the support they need to get through the system and to stay out of it.

Our children’s ombudsperson is available to assess and respond to the civil rights of children involved with the juvenile justice system. The children’s ombudsperson

  • Promotes and protect the rights and interests of children
  • Improves access to existing rights across and among child serving systems
  • Promotes child-rights respecting practices and policies across the community

The children’s ombudsperson may provide information about legal rights and applicable rules and regulations. The children’s ombudsperson does not act as an attorney for the child and no attorney-client relationship is established.
