This Child Requiring Assistance* & Resources Booklet is an excerpt from Kids & the Law, an ACS publication currently under revision. The CRA and Resources booklet is free and publicly available below.
The CRA and Resources booklet answers questions that parents/legal guardians may have when applying for a CRA or during the CRA court process. The CRA section is paired with a Resources section which includes information about where people may go to learn more about mental health and substance abuse services, legal assistance, crisis services, LGBTQ services and more.
(*The Child Requiring Assistance (CRA) law was passed in 2012, a revision of what was previously the Child in Need of Services (CHINS) law.)
