Feldman Shepherd Sponsors Support Center for Child Advocates’ 7th Annual Child Advocates Golf Classic

October 4, 2012

Philadelphia personal injury law firm Feldman Shepherd Wohlgelernter Tanner Weinstock Dodig LLP joined the Support Center for Child Advocates (Child Advocates) as a corporate sponsor of its 7th Annual Golf Classic.

Proceeds from the charity event will support the organization’s Project for Medically Needy Children. The Project teams staff social workers with specially trained volunteer lawyers to secure necessary medical treatment, special education, rehabilitation services, and whenever possible permanent nurturing homes for cases involving children with serious and/or chronic medical needs.

“Our medically needy cases are more complex, remain open longer and require more agency resources than typical cases,” says Frank Cervone, Child Advocates Executive Director and a nationally-recognized child abuse legal expert. “The Philadelphia corporate and legal communities have been critical in generating funds, awareness and changing the story for many of our areas most vulnerable children.”
