The Morrissey-Compton Educational Center, Inc. is pleased to honor the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley, Legal Advocates for Children and Youth program as its 2021 Outstanding Community Partner.

The Law Foundation seeks social justice in Silicon Valley and beyond through vigorous legal advocacy. They advance the rights of under-represented individuals and families in our diverse community through legal services, strategic advocacy, and educational outreach. In its Legal Advocates for Children and Youth program, the Law Foundation uses a multidisciplinary service model to help youth lead healthy and productive lives, providing representation to child victims of abuse and neglect, supporting special needs students in efforts to obtain appropriate school-based services, and educate youth about their legal rights.

The Law Foundation is a long-time partner of Morrissey-Compton in the Santa Clara County Educational Rights Project. Through this project, Morrissey-Compton works collaboratively with the Department of Family and Children’s Services and the Juvenile Division of the Probation Department to promote the school-related needs of youth involved in the child welfare or juvenile justice systems. Combining the Law Foundation’s legal advocacy with Morrissey-Compton’s diagnostic and treatment services ensures system-involved youth will receive a high level of service to help eliminate barriers impeding their academic success.
