Damon King, Skadden Fellow to Begin Work at YLC

Damon King, our Skadden Fellow, will begin work here on September 14th.  His project is to enforce the rights of children in California’s group homes through direct representation, legal support to court-appointed attorneys, and collaboration with state agencies to resolve facility licensing violations.  The goal of his project is to reduce the frequency of group home placements and improve living conditions for California’s group home residents through statewide legal policy advocacy.

Please feel free to contact him with any group home concerns.
