Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide high-quality legal services to Maryland's poor through a mix of services and to bring about the changes poor people want in the systems that affect them.

Description

Established in 1911, the Legal Aid Bureau, Inc. is a private, non-profit law firm providing free civil legal services to low-income people throughout Maryland. Legal Aid serves Baltimore City and Maryland 23 counties from 13 offices. Funding comes from federal, state, and local governments, United Way, foundations, law firms, and other private contributors.

Legal Aid priorities are in family, child advocacy, housing, education, employment, consumer, and public benefits law. Clients are provided necessary legal assistance to gain protection from domestic violence, fight unlawful evictions, and obtain desperately needed Medical Assistance, disability benefits, unemployment insurance, and other forms of temporary financial assistance.

Special statewide programs provide representation and assistance for children who are victims of abuse and neglect, the elderly, nursing home and assisted living residents, migrant and seasonal farmworkers, tenants working to preserve affordable housing, and parents striving to re-enter the workforce.
