Advocacy

Working on behalf of Children and Families in their Communities and on Beacon Hill

CLM works together with our members, other advocacy organizations and individuals to advocate for the best possible services for children and their families in the Commonwealth. CLM works with state legislators to create change in the General Laws and we work with the state administration to impliment change in regulations and the delivery of services to protect children and provide resources for families in need.

CLM is currently working on many areas affecting our most vulnerable population, our children.
