Youth, Rights & Justice


To improve the lives of abused, neglected or in-trouble children and youth—primarily those in foster care—through legal representation and advocacy in the courts, Legislature, schools and community.

Bottom Line for Portland

Youth, Rights & Justice has directly represented, at no charge, more than 50,000 vulnerable children in the Portland metropolitan area. Its SchoolWorks program has helped nearly 3,000 succeed in school, and through its work to improve laws and create systemic change, YR&J has aided hundreds of thousands of Oregon’s children in need.

“Every child in Oregon deserves to have hope and justice. Youth, Rights & Justice provides both.” —The Hon. Tina Kotek, Oregon House speaker
