A $75,000 Leadership Grant was awarded to launch Kids First Law Center in Des Moines. Kids First Law Center gives children a voice in divorce, custody and other high-conflict events by providing focused legal representation and services for kids. The overall goals for Kids First are to create stability for children of high-conflict divorce, lessen the effect of family conflict on children, connect families to support systems and needed resources and make children’s voices heard.
Jenny Schulz, Executive Director and Founder of Kids First Law Center, shares, “What a gift to receive a Leadership Grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines. We have been astounded by the generosity and determination of residents of Greater Des Moines to raise the seed money needed to open an office here. Thanks to the Community Foundation, we are thrilled to make Kids First Des Moines a reality!”
