Sometimes Justice Comes For Children

Stories of Justice

Every Child Counts

Children are the most vulnerable members of our society. In Louisiana, far too many children live in poverty or encounter some sort of abuse or neglect. The Louisiana Bar Foundation recognizes this and is committed to helping these children. The LBF works hard to help as many as possible receive the most help possible, through our grants program. Here are just a few examples.

Eric, an Orleans Parish deaf student, was expelled from school because of behavior problems directly related to a disability. The Advocacy Center, an LBF grantee, requested an Individualized Education Planning meeting on Eric's behalf. Through that process, his parents were able to secure an appropriate educational plan for him. With his communication and behavioral needs being properly addressed, Eric is flourishing in his new school and receiving the education he deserves.
