Join the fight for justice

Why work with us?

At Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid, the work we do is more than a paycheck. It’s about helping our most vulnerable community members: the parent and children who need to leave a violent home; the neighbor who just lost a job and needs help getting health care and unemployment insurance; the grandparent in need of a Health Care Directive. It’s about justice and inclusion for our clients and coworkers and making a difference in our communities.
