time & Expertise

  • Act as liason between the juvenile justice and child welfare system
  • Ensure courts have most information with which to make informed judgments regarding these youth
  • Seal juvenile misdemeanor and felony records

Our Mission

Juvenile and Capital Advocacy Project of Texas is a vocal advocate for Harris County juveniles and adults affected by the juvenile justice system through efforts dedicated to juvenile record sealing, ad-litem representation for dual-status youth, and mentorship.

The consequences of juvenile delinquency can arise immediately or without warning during adulthood. Devote your time and expertise as an undergraduate, law student, or attorney ad-litem to helping secure the best start or second chance for someone today. 

ADVOCACY IN ACTION

  • Train and equip law students in proper case investigation (including investigations on placements and services), advocacy and reporting to the CPS court
  • Provide younger students with the benefit of another positive adult influence in their lives
