Frequently Asked Questions
Geographical Areas Served
Because of you, The Custody Project has served families in the U.S. Virgin Islands and all 50 states, with the exception of Alaska, Delaware, New Hampshire, and Vermont, and our range continues to expand.
TCP's mission is to promote the general welfare, both directly and indirectly, of women and their children as a unit as related to care, custody, and visitation issues. For more information, please see our Mission Statement and Programs.
Why TCP Gives
The Custody Project assists with care, custody, and visitation expenses, usually during extreme financial crises, and helps to stabilize families. TCP recognizes that a financial disaster often occurs when legal expenses must take precedence to preserve a family's welfare, and common necessities must be forfeited. And we recognize that, when a mother, defending the custody or visitation of her children, can no longer provide the common necessities of life for her family because her finances have been economically stretched and simultaneously diminished to an unsustainable degree, a financial domino has occurred. For this reason, our grants assist families directly with legal expenses or, when these have been paid, with food, utilities, rent, mortgage, car, health, and other expenses which had to be forfeited to cover the legal expenses.
Giving in fulfillment of its Mission Statement, our Case Excerpts, Testimonials, Myths and Facts, Services for Mothers, Annual Letter, Mothers in Peril, and About Us sections help to explain when and in what situations we assist.
Critical Importance of Your Compassion
The Custody Project assists mothers on a case-by-case basis, since 1994. Few critical services exist for these often forgotten families. Their needs matter and, although the number of requests are far greater than we can match, every family you help matters.
