The Law Offices of Braid Pezzaglia is sponsoring the Dependency Advocacy Center (DAC) for their 10th anniversary celebration on October 25, 2018. DAC is hosting a benefit dinner at Hotel De Anza in San Jose. Their dinner will honor DAC’s 2018 Outstanding Parent, Alyssa Lopez and 2018 Distinguished Advocate, Chief Laura Garnette.
DAC is a nonprofit organization that has been providing free, family defense advocacy to underserved families in Santa Clara County’s child welfare system since 2008. For clients who face separation from their children due to concerns of abuse and neglect, DAC zealously advocates for their reunification and preservation.
In addition to providing legal services in these sensitive cases, DAC employs in-house social workers and Mentor Parents to support families in an innovative, holistic way. Mentor Parents are parents who have successfully been through the dependency system and were reunited with their children. They provide support, guidance and motivation to parents who are struggling.
For more information about DAC, their mission and how you can support them, you can check out their website. Visit the Law Offices of Braid Pezzaglia website for more information about local, sponsored events.
