Children and Youth Activities
From feeding the Lincoln High football team before their games to founding a non-profit that advocates for children caught in the middle of tumultuous divorce cases, Stahancyk, Kent & Hook places children at the top of our priority list. Below, see the ways in which our firm and individual attorneys and staff volunteer time and resources to help children fulfill their potential.
A non-profit founded by Jody Stahancyk in 2006, CCS gives representation to children in divorce cases so that judges can make determinations in the best interest of the child. SK&H provides CCS with office space, IT and marketing assistance, and even event planning. Read more about CCS.
Every fall, we host the Lincoln Football Team at our Portland office for pre-game feasts. Our support of the Lincoln team is paired with our support of our Summer Student Interns, who gain valuable skills planning and organizing these dinners.
Manging Shareholder of our Bend office Joel J. Kent not only coaches for the Rimrock Volleyball Club, he also helps his players get into college on volleyball scholarships.
Our Summer Student Intern Program is designed to help high school students begin their college and professional careers on the right foot, with proper etiquette, manners, speech, and dress.
