We will cease operating out of our present location at 6750 West Loop South, Bellaire, Texas by the end of June. We can accomplish the same results out of our homes, universities, and places of employment. We are ideally situated to make this transition since most of our cases come to us from forms completed on our website which are directed to any of our computers, wherever they are located. We are able to monitor and update case files on a central database, respond to questions and complete casework. All documents must be sent electronically.
Rather than call us about the status of your case, it is best for you to send your questions to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a new case, complete the Intake form on our website, and, once we have reviewed it, we will let you know if we are able to assist in some way.
We expect some challenges associated with making this transition. The timing of our responses and the cost of making this transition are unknown. Thus, we are asking for your understanding during this process. In the short term, we will have to restrict our intake of new cases to only people in the Greater Houston area as well as curtail our work on some existing cases that are out of state.
We know that we are your “court of last resort.” We are dedicated to helping you. We will return to handling more cases in other locales when we are able to locate more volunteers and financial resources.
We need your help. If you are aware of resources – including volunteers to assist us with our cases or technical resources such as additional laptops and a secure central server – that will assist us in getting back up to speed quickly. If you are able to provide any financial assistance to us or know someone who can, donations may be made on our website: “https://justiceforchildren.org/help-now/”. Your contributions and assistance will help us continue to be the voice of abused children everywhere.
To those mothers and other protectors who are desperately seeking help for your children, I especially ask for your patience since your situations are so dire. Know that Justice for Children will NEVER give the fight or cease to be the voice of children who are unable to get the help that they deserve.
Randy Burton, Founder
WHO WE ARE | WHAT WE DO
Justice for Children’s Call Center helps when the child protection system fails to protect a child. We offer information, guidance and assistance to adults who are trying to keep the child safe.
Our Pro Bono Legal program provides free legal help when it appears that a court or agency will return a child to an abusive situation. Our Court Watch program sends observers to courts in cases where a know abuser might be on the verge of obtaining custody or unsupervised visitation.
Justice for Children does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, and age in the delivery of services.
Your tax deductible donation to help us help children will change lives.
The purpose of Justice for Children is to provide a full range of advocacy and services for abused and neglected children; that includes pro-bono legal advocacy, public policy monitoring, guidance through a complex child protective system, professional referrals, mental health services, court watch, research, education, and emotional support. The following is a brief explanation of our advocacy and services
WHAT WE BELIEVE
Every child has the right to grow up in a safe and nurturing environment
Child abuse is a crime and should be treated as such
Child abuse costs American taxpayers more than $300 billion dollars a year
The primary focus of communities, child protective agencies, police and courts should be on the safety of the child rather than the rights of the parents
Attorneys appointed to represent children should have an enforceable obligation to the child
When a child reports being sexually molested or physically abused, the child should be protected until and unless the report is proven false
No child should be forced to spend unsupervised time with their abuser
Child protective agencies should be held accountable for negligent failure to protect children in their charge, Society has a moral obligation to protect our children from abuse and neglect
The safety and rights of the child are paramount to the rights of any caretaker
