Every child deserves an education.
Success in school is a crucial building block to success in life. Legal Aid works to remove barriers that keep children and families from enrolling and excelling in school. Staff and volunteers protect the rights of students with disabilities, prevent expulsions for students with behavior problems, ensure stable housing to support consistent attendance, and preserve public benefits to provide the necessary resources to help families thrive.
This work is possible through Legal Aid’s partnerships with Cleveland Metropolitan School District, The Boys and Girls Clubs of Cleveland, and the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association.
