The first week of each month we will bring you our Community Partner Spotlight featuring a nonprofit we work with to help raise funds for transition age foster youth. This month we are proud to highlight the incredible work of the Children’s Advocacy Institute!
Children’s Advocacy Institute (CAI) was founded at USD’s School of Law 25 years ago, and is one of the nation’s premier advocacy organizations working to improve the lives of children, especially foster youth and TAY. In its academic branch, CAI provides extensive training for law students and attorneys to become effective child advocates. In research and advocacy, CAI leverages change through impact litigation, regulatory and legislative advocacy, and public education. CAI also convenes the 300 statewide and regional member Children’s Advocates Roundtable held quarterly to discuss industry issues. CAI operates out of Washington DC, Sacramento and San Diego.
