What does Porchlight Counseling Services have to do with the Center for Law and Social Work?

As of September 2017, the Center has partnered with Porchlight Counseling Services. Both non profit organizations wanted to serve a wider population, and agree that this partnership will aid in that goal. Since 2003, the Center for Law and Social Work has been devoted to assisting families, and supporting them on their journey to safety and stability. The agency has evolved from its early years, when the Center specialized exclusively in back up planning for families associated with the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). Today, the Center offers a range of services, which includes family clinical intervention. The Center is able to provide short-term counseling to DCFS families, and therapeutic services at a sliding scale fee to non-DCFS families. The Center for Law and Social work is partnering with Porchlight Counseling Services to address the dangers and difficulties faced not only by the children and disabled adults traditionally served by the Center, but by women and men who have been sexually assaulted.
