This Year's Project: Medical-Legal Partnership

Iowa Legal Aid is a nonprofit law firm that strengthens individuals, families and communities by providing free civil legal assistance to low-income Iowans. We have been meeting the needs of low-income Iowans for 42 years. Our Sioux City office has 5 attorneys and serves 13 counties in Northwest Iowa. We make hope, dignity and justice available to our clients by securing income, housing, and safety. Our strategic initiatives help children, seniors, veterans, disaster victims, domestic violence survivors and people with disabilities.



Current Project: Medical-Legal Partnership



Iowa Legal Aid partners with the Siouxland Community Health Center to provide direct legal services for patients. A person’s health is affected by more than just the quality of healthcare they receive. Social factors such as housing, unemployment, or domestic violence can greatly affect our health. By partnering to resolve the legal needs of patients, attorneys are able to disrupt the cycle of unhealthy conditions and help patients lead healthier lives.
