Our Mission

Dade Legal Aid was founded in 1949 to meet the unmet civil legal needs of low-income residents of Miami-Dade County, Florida. Dade Legal Aid Foundation, Inc. supports, promotes, advocates, and raises funds for Dade Legal Aid, the oldest provider of civil legal services in the community. The purposes for which the foundation was formed are charitable and to provide additional civil legal assistance to Legal Aid’s qualifying clients and families in need.
