Kids In The Middle empowers children, parents and families during and after divorce through counseling, education and support. The Agency opened its doors in 1977, providing Group Counseling for Children whose families are experiencing trauma due to parental separation, divorce, and remarriage. Since that time, our services have expanded to serving the whole family, including parents. Paola Stange previously served on the Board of Directors.
The Stanges also paid for Kids In The Middle’s webpage.
Paola was a member of the Moot Court Society during her time at Emory Law, and says that experience gave her confidence as a practicing lawyer in the courtroom. Kirk has served as a moot court judge, taught CLEs, and served as a speaker at various engagements.
The Stanges value proficiency in writing and orating, and their practice mirrors those values.

Old Newsboys is a non-profit organization that has raised millions of dollars for hundreds of area children’s charities. Funding helps ensure every child in the St. Louis area has an equal opportunity to live a healthy, educated life. The fund is often called the “charity of last resort” because small, in-the-trench charities rely on these grants to avoid being at the road’s end for supplying necessary items like food, clothing and medical supplies.
