Child and Family Services at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s

Through the Manhattan DA’s Criminal Justice Investment Initiative, The Legal Aid Society was awarded funds for two full time Legal Aid attorneys to provide free legal services for patients at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Child and Family Services, who are at high risk of poor life outcomes, including eventual justice system involvement. The program focuses on legal screenings for families; education advocacy for parents and legal guardians; training to case managers; advocating special education services in schools; and representing youth in suspension hearings.
