What We Do

Iowa Legal Aid provides free civil legal services to low-income and vulnerable Iowans. We help struggling Iowans who need - but cannot get - legal support to confront the challenges that few of us could handle on our own. We ensure fairness and justice under the law by providing equal access to the court system. Iowa Legal Aid is providing legal assistance to those affected by the recent flooding, including addressing landlord tenant issues, homeowner issues, insurance, accessing governmental assistance, contractor issues, replacing lost documents, etc. To support this effort, please donate now and use donation code “FLOOD.”
