Child Advocacy Today
CAT brings pediatricians and lawyers together, drawing on the strengths of two powerful professions, to ensure that families can meet the basic needs of their children for health care, housing, education, nutrition and family stability, all crucial to a child’s health and development and all impacted dramatically by poverty.
This innovative collaboration focuses on preventative law and healthier children for our future, by providing free legal assistance for income-eligible patients.
Can CAT help you?
- Families with chronically ill children who need legal assistance to ensure their child’s health needs.
- Families who qualify for Medicaid or KCHIP but are not receiving the benefit.
- Families who may need legal assistance in dealing with substandard housing issues.
- Families who may have other legal issues impacting their child’s health.
