Mission Statement and Vision:
Our Mission is to provide quality legal services to people who would not otherwise have equal access to justice, in ways which affirm their individual and collective dignity, integrity, and power.
Our Vision is that all Arizona residents, particularly those within the 33,000 square miles where Southern Arizona Legal Aid, Inc. (SALA) provides legal services, have access to legal, social and economic justice. Further, it is our Vision that all individuals and families in our service area understand the vital role SALA plays in assisting low-income individuals
Organization’s Background and Impact:
SALA has been providing civil legal aid to Southern Arizona since 1951. We are committed to ensuring that low-income community members have access to civil legal aid because we know that equal access to justice promotes family stability, strengthens neighborhoods, and improves the quality of life for all our communities. In 2020, SALA was able to provide direct legal aid to meet the fundamental unmet civil legal needs of more than 10,726 individuals.
