Intake at a Monthly Clinic

This is a wonderful opportunity for individuals who love working with people and learning about different cultures.  At the monthly clinic you will be paired with an immigrant client in need of legal services.  You will help us obtain basic background information prior to the client’s consultation with the attorney.

Time Commitment: 2-3 hours a month

Location(s): Cedar Rapids, Columbus Junction, Decorah, Des Moines, Ottumwa, and Storm Lake

Childcare at a Monthly Clinic

This opportunity is a great one for creative, fun-loving individuals who love working with children.  Many of our clients are unable to find childcare for their appointments and these great volunteers ensure that the parent can meet privately with the attorney while the child is safe and having fun!

Time Commitment: 2-3 hours a month

Location(s): Cedar Rapids, Columbus Junction, Decorah, Des Moines, Ottumwa, and Storm Lake
