Goldwasser & Chan seeks out 501(C)(3) organizations that have a proven record of effectively using donor resources to bring restoration to the lives of children and families. 10% of the firm's net income goes to support these organizations before we distribute any profit to firm members. We prioritize organizations which do their work in the communities where most of our clients are located. We hope to not only improve the lives of our clients through legal representation, but through the support of organizations working in the communities where they live.

Youth Consultation Services
Since 1918, YCS has been providing critical behavioral health services to thousands of New Jersey families who have children birth through– adulthood, with special needs. Some children at YCS therapeutic group homes are separated from their loved ones and have been affected by trauma; other individuals are affected by intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) that adversely affect their behavior and require permanent safe home-like care. Many other families participate in home visitation programs and outpatient clinical services that enable their families to remain together. Whatever the need, the caring YCS staff is prepared to offer individualized support 24/7. The YCS mission is to partner with at-risk children who have special needs and adults with developmental disabilities, to build happier, healthier, more hopeful lives within their families and communities.
