Iowa Legal Aid makes hope, dignity and justice available to low-income Iowans through legal assistance and education that protects fundamental rights, basic necessities and access to the judicial system; challenges policies and practices that harm low-income persons; and empowers clients to advocate effectively for themselves and their communities.

It is a statewide program serving residents of all 99 Iowa counties with ten regional offices located in Sioux City, Council Bluffs, Mason City, Des Moines, Ottumwa, Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Davenport, Dubuque and Waterloo.
