Southeast Louisiana Legal Services (SLLS) seeks an Executive Director to lead this nationally recognized nonprofit organization dedicated to providing free legal aid on civil issues to low income households.
SLLS has been well-served by its highly regarded long standing co-executive directors. SLLS began in 1979 with a grant from the Legal Services Corporation. In 2002, SLLS and New Orleans Legal Assistance Corporation, which was founded in 1967, merged. SLLS expanded again in 2011 to areas in and around Baton Rouge and Houma. On its budget of more than $6 million, SLLS serves an area nearly twice the land mass of Connecticut and Rhode Island combined which includes twenty-two southeast Louisiana Parishes. One half the state’s poverty population lives in the SLLS service area.
The next Executive Director will lead SLLS in a time of great change and opportunity as the organization undertakes initiatives to strengthen legal work, streamline intake, support professional development, update technology, and grow resources.
