Legal Aid of the Bluegrass Seeks an Executive Director
Legal Aid of the Bluegrass (LABG) seeks an Executive Director to lead this nonprofit organization dedicated to providing civil legal assistance designed to alleviate the most brutal problems endured by low income residents of 33 eastern, northern and central Kentucky counties, typically in the areas of government benefits, consumer, housing and family law with special projects directed at serving the unique needs of the elderly, veterans, and survivors of domestic violence, including immigrants .
LABG is the lifeline to justice, safety and stability in its communities. While the financial crisis has caused greater suffering among clients, and limited resources have forced LABG to turn away more than half of those who are eligible based on income and nature of the legal problem, LABG has developed new approaches and focused on work that will have the greatest positive impact. It is proud to continue to make a difference in the lives of the poor and vulnerable residents of its community.
LABG has been well-served by its highly regarded long-standing executive director, who is retiring after 30 years in the position and 38 years in legal aid. Its knowledgeable Board and dedicated staff will continue the commitment to clients and creativity in service delivery, which are its hallmarks.
