Welcome to the Coalition for the Protection of Children and Families.

About  Us:  WE are parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, cousins, and, most importantly, members of a family.  Families are important to keep us connected with our past and our heritage.

The Parent Advocate Network is a grass roots gathering of parents and families who believe in the importance of Family Values.  We are the Coalition for the Protection of Children and Families and we invite you to join the discussion.  We are assembling by region to approach lawmakers and politicians for the purpose of law reform to protect children and families.

Our Vision:  To help families remain whole and to support families that have been wrongfully separated work towards reunification.

Our mission: Our mission is to offer support, counseling, and advocacy for parents dealing with family court, DCFS/CPS, and related child custody matters.  To assist in Pro Se representation.  We are here to help and offer on-call assistance.  

We also lobby for laws to protect family values and reunification of families discriminated against by government officials.  We meet with federal, state, and local government officials and lobby for equal treatment of parents in the eyes of the law.

Our Core Values:​  We are dedicated to supporting parents and families with education, counseling, and non-violent solution based advocacy for children and families.

Strategic Goals:   WE are here for you.  Chat with us live!

  1. To offer counseling and emotional support for parents in distress.
  2. To help Identify and Enable parents to create a safe and stable environment for their families.
  3. To help parents understand their rights as well as navigating through the courts' policies and procedures.
  4. To help parents access community resources that are available to them.
  5. To help parents become good role models who provide healthy, nurturing environments for their children.
  6. Due to the exorbitant fees incurred in custody cases, a lack of adequate public counsel, and for the Love of Our Children, we offer experience based assistance through our Parent Advocacy program.  If you need para legal assistance, please let us know.
  7. To offer guidance in your self representation, 'Pro Se'.

On-call Assistance:  Be sure to click on our live chat icon to receive assistance.  We will always answer.  Just give us some time.  If you do not hear from a Parent Advocate promptly, the Coalition4Protection will send you a message as soon as possible.

Join Us:   We are still developing this site and volunteers are needed.
If you have been assisted by the Coalition for the Protection of Children and Families, be sure to consider donating your time or money to assist the Coalition for the Protection of Children and Families(CPCF), so that other parents who are facing similar difficulties can continue to receive assistance.

In order for us to succeed, we need Parent Advocate Representatives in every state.  Please contact us if you would like to become an active board member.  

We rely on our Parent Advocates and donors to help us achieve our goals.  This site and our services continue to grow and change as your support increases.

Please join us in this mission to fight for the rights or parents and children across the nation and the world.  Help bring moral and ethical values back to our world through active dissent of the 'status quo'.

Know that  you are not alone....

There is a clear lack of parent advocates in Family/Juvenile child custody cases.  This leaves many parents vulnerable to coercive tactics.  "Contracts must be entered into freely by both of the parties and include mutual assent. ... A contract can't be enforced against a person who was forced or coerced into entering the ... Duress is wrongful pressure exerted upon a person in order to coerce that person into a contract that he or she ordinarily wouldn't enter."

The Reality of Child Trafficking in America.  (It is real.)  An estimated 70% of children in Foster Care in California, ALONE, are exploited by pimps and prostitution rings.
