JALA provides advocacy and representation on behalf of children and youth in several areas to promote their future self-sufficiency and freedom from abuse.
The areas we handle are listed below. Please note that as much as we would like to help every client who applies for our services, we cannot accept every case due to limited resources. Case acceptance will depend on the circumstances of each case, whether all eligibility criteria are met, and staff availability. On the other hand, if you do not see your legal problem listed, it does not mean we will not consider your case. We are always interested in learning about new and different issues affecting our community.
We help in three main ways; Education, Emancipation, Juvenile Delinquency, Mental Health and Medical Legal Collaboration. Click topics below to expand for more information.
