Legal Services Grants
Recognizing that children have special legal needs, and that those needs were going largely unmet, The Florida Bar Foundation began funding special annual grants for legal assistance to children in the early 1990s. The Foundation’s priorities for its Children’s Legal Services grants include representation of foster youth and access to special education, medical, developmental and mental health services that are required under law. Gifts from attorneys to the Foundation from the Children’s Legal Services campaign on the annual Florida Bar fee statement help support these grants, along with proceeds from the Kids Deserve Justice license plate initiative.
