It takes approximately $338.00 in donations to help a CLCW family adopt a child out of foster care. We expect to help our clients adopt more than 60 foster kids each year but cannot meet this goal without the help of donors like you.

Provide on-going financial support. Sign up as a "Defender" and enable us provide the legal services necessary so that three additional foster kids could be adopted each year!
That's three less kids in foster care, and three more kids with permanent families each year. Thanks to our Defenders.
What is a Defender? Every child deserves a permanent family. We will work tirelessly defending this basic right. In the Old Testament book of Psalms, the psalmist urges society to “Defend the weak and the orphan and uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.” (Psalm 82:3.)
Anyone who commits to supporting the CLCW on a regular basis in an amount of at least $82.30 per month (as an homage to Psalm 82:3) is a Defender. The CLCW will count on your regular support and you will receive special updates, an honorary tee-shirt, photographs and inside access to the daily news and needs of the CLCW.
