Professional Alliance for Children

Our mission is to improve the lives of ill children by aligning professionals to provide free legal and financial advice to their families. Attorneys, Certified Financial Planners, and CPA's work together to help families with a child being treated at a local hospital. Many of the families are staying at the Ronald McDonald House. The Alliance offers advice on the many issues that families face when they have an ill child, including public benefits, debt management, insurance, immigration, bankruptcy, foreclosure, and guardianships.
