CAP 100 – History of the Children’s Attorneys Project

August 1, 2018, Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, “Pro Bono Project”

A  task force of Clark County commissioners, judges, social workers, attorneys, and children’s advocates recognized the need to provide abused and neglected children in the foster care system a voice in court. Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada established the Children’s Attorneys Project (CAP) in 1999 with one staff attorney. Nearly 20 years later, CAP has grown to 23 staff attorneys. With the help of pro bono attorneys, Legal Aid Center currently represents 85% of the children in foster care, and by January of 2019 our goal is to represent 100% of the youth in foster care.  To read entire article click here.
