WHO WE ARE

The Legacy Family Court Foundation provides advocacy and funding for the Legacy Family
Specialty Court in Dallas County, Texas. The Legacy Family Court Foundation was created by a
dedicated group of Dallas area judges, lawyers and interested business leaders to develop the non-adversarial program to
support parents with substance abuse issues and reunite them with their children who have been removed as a result of the parent’s addiction issues.


The mission of the Legacy Family Court Foundation is to support the Legacy Family Specialty
Court of Dallas County in its goal to achieve successful recovery, rehabilitation, and reunification
of parents with their children by raising funds and awareness for effective court advocacy.
