2017 Needs Assessment, ONLINE SURVEY available now!

Every 5 years, ALS undertakes a comprehensive Needs Assessment Surveying Process.  ALS is currently in the process of receiving information and completed surveys from community members and will soon be holding Focus Groups on all three reservations.


It's about 20 questions, takes just a few minutes, but your input is invaluable to help the Program determine the civil legal needs of the community and whether or not more outreach is necessary to inform individuals of available resources.

Thanks to the Tiwahe Foundation, ALS is able to hold Focus Group meetings this year!  ALS is seeking 10 individuals from each of the three reservations: Red Lake, Leech Lake, and White Earth, to take part in a 1 time focus group meeting.  Provide input on your community's legal needs, discuss challenges and barriers, and bring forth ideas to your legal services program!  Participants will receive a $25 gift card for their participation, limited to 10 individuals per group.  Elders are strongly encouraged to attend.

Please call or email Chari for more information about the Focus Group meetings--to be scheduled a location near you!  218-335-2223 x 102 or  

MIIGWECH for your participation!

Special thanks to local businesses for their support with goods or services for a drawing.  Individuals who have completed a survey can be entered to win:
