This is the secure, confidential, group site for all Florida Bar Foundation Children's Legal Services grantee staff working on CLS projects. Membership is restricted to legal services attorneys, legal services staff, and child advocates not employed by the state who are working on child advocacy issues similar to the CLS grantees.  Employees of the state of Florida are excluded from the list at this time.  Alison DeBelder is the Administrator of this site. Please contact Alison if you have any questions or suggestions for improving this site. If you have technical questions or need assistance navigating the site, please contact us.



In light of the wonderful work being done by the Florida Dependency Law Center (FDLC) managing searchable resources for attorneys working with children, FLAdvocate will be decommissioning the Children's Legal Services practice area later this summer.  FLAdvocate will still continue to host the listservs (email groups), that you use to communicate.
