What We Do

Legal Aid of Marin’s mission is to create an equitable Marin by empowering the community through legal representation, advocacy and education.

Our Vision: An inclusive Marin with equal justice and opportunity for all.

 

“Funding for this program, at least in part, is made available by the Older Americans Act, administered locally by the Marin Department of Health and Human Services, Aging and Adult Services.”

Our Board of Directors adopted Legal Aid of Marin’s current Strategic Plan February 2021. Click here to view our plan.
