THE STORY:

Robin Wolfe wrote -

Our Juvenile Court is child friendly but the play room hasn't been updated in years! The trains aren't Thomas and they're riding on dusty tracks. The books are old and worn, not the old and worn type that you treasure on your bookshelf. We need a redo!

I'm an attorney representing children and parents in the foster care system. My child client's often come to court, and I hear from so many former foster children that this it's so important to see court, meet their judge, have a voice, and be a part of the process.

But sometimes kids don't want to sit in the courtroom and hear all the details. They need a room that's cozy (bean bags?), safe (new shelving?), fun (flatscreen? wii?) and maybe even a place they can do their homework and play (paper, pencils, art supplies)!

We have the space but no $ to fill it! It won't take much to give some of the most deserving children a simple, safe and creative space.

The Multnomah Bar Foundation (MBF) board voted in favor of receiving the money raised for refurbishing the space and replacing the toys at the Juvenile Justice Center where children wait for their parents while they are in court. It is within the MBF's mission.
