Child Requiring Assistance & Resources: An Except from Kids and the Law

ACS's publication, Kids and the Law, serves as a valuable resource for adolescents, families, and other professionals. This straightforward guide to the procedures of the Massachusetts Juvenile Court will be updated and republished in an English/Spanish edition.

Please note: There have been extensive changes to the laws regarding the Massachusetts Juvenile Court. An updated edition of Kids and the Law is being prepared. In the meantime, ACS has published a copy of the chapter dealing with Child Requiring Assistance applications as well as the Resources section. You can access this in "Flipbook" format for online viewing or download a PDF. 

This project has been made possible by the generous support of the C.F. Adams Foundation as well as Gary and Mary Pforzheimer.
