As it does every year, Children’s Law Center of Minnesota (CLC) reviewed a sample of cases closed in 2010 to gain a better understanding of the clients it serves, their needs and experiences, and how CLC can best address them.[1]  The sample group includes 40 randomly selected clients who were discharged from foster care, ranging in age from 4 to 17.   While CLC’s clients all face enormous challenges, hope, and even success, predominates among the sample group of clients who left foster care in 2010.

The Report on FY 2009 Client Outcomes analysis is based on a random sample of forty-one (25%) of the cases closed by CLC in 2009. The report covers a statistical analysis of sampled client demographics, representation, experience, problems, placements, and permanency and education outcomes. The report shows that foster youth with CLC attorneys had fewer foster home placements after they got their attorney, and that 93% of clients sampled achieved positive permanency outcomes.
