The Center for Children’s Advocacy (CCA) is the largest children’s legal rights organization in New England and was founded in 1997 by long-time civil rights attorney Martha Stone. Attorney Stone wanted to create a nonprofit law firm that specialized in children’s legal issues.
CCA combines three advocacy strategies – individual legal representation; legal rights training for youth, parents, and professionals; and advocacy for system reforms.
Training and systemic advocacy maximize the reach of CCA’s staff. Trainings increase and improve legal advocacy for children, and systemic reforms benefit thousands of children beyond individual legal representation.
