Pegasus Legal Services for Children is a nonprofit agency that provides free civil legal services to children, youth, and their caregivers, including direct representation, community legal education, and systemic advocacy.
Pegasus works with policy makers to ensure that children’s needs and rights are taken into consideration in the development of state and local laws, policies and regulations.
The Pegasus Youth Law Project provides advocacy and legal services to youth who are homeless or have run away, need access to education, health or mental health care, and/or are transitioning from foster care to adulthood.
Pegasus provides information online to families seeking to enforce their children’s right to a free and appropriate education, with a particular focus on the needs of children with disabilities. *Note: we can no longer provide legal representation or advice in this area*
Pegasus works as Guardian ad Litems (GALs) – children’s attorneys who represent the best interests of the child – and youth attorneys for young people over age 14, in the 2nd Judicial District and the specialized ICWA court.
