Mission Statement

The mission of New Mexico Legal Aid is to be the voice, defender and advocate for poor people who are seeking justice in all forums, particuarly in the communities in which they live. NMLA is committed to help poor people in their struggle to access food, shelter, security, and to preserve their unique cultural heritages.

Description

For nearly sixty years, New Mexico Legal Aid, Inc. (NMLA) has been providing critically needed advocacy and legal representation to low income New Mexicans and to victims fleeing domestic violence regardless of income. Established in 1953 as the Legal Aid Society of Albuquerque, NMLA united with the Santa Fe, Las Cruces and Pueblo Nations legal aid programs to form a statewide legal aid program in 2003. NMLA has ten offices strategically located around the state to increase community access to the legal system.

For many people with low incomes, legal aid represents the only avenue to meet and/or relieve their needs, concerns, and crises. Often, it is the sole means through which children, women, and those who are elderly, among others, can find safety and achieve stability, self-sufficiency, and well-being.
