Center for Law and Social Work

The Center of Law and Social Work (CLSW) has been preserving families, providing hope and protecting lives throughout the State of Illinois since 2003. Our mission is to achieve the best outcomes for families, young adults, and children by providing the highest quality services. We believe that all families, regardless of financial circumstances, should have equal access to legal and social work services in order to remain stable and secure. CLSW manages the Adoption Listing Service for the State of Illinois and provides relative, non-relative, second parent, step-parent, adoption services as well as DCFS foster parent adoption and post adoption services. Since 2017, CLSW has provided counseling and advocacy for survivors of college campus sexual assault through our Porchlight Counseling Services program.

All funds raised through CLSW’s Impact Gala 2019 will be in support of our mission. Marion Brooks, NBC5 News Anchor, will once again be our Master of Ceremonies. Supporters of CLSW will enjoy cocktails in the beautiful tented ballroom of Galleria Marchetti while taking a chance on the CLSW raffle and Wine Pull. During the seated dinner, CLSW will be honoring a leader in adoption advocacy with the “Impact Award.” The awards program will be followed by a one of a kind Live Auction filled with many exciting prizes.

Please join us and make a difference in the lives of at-risk children and young adults in Illinois!
