MLPB believes in the power of justice to advance health. We equip health and human services organizations with problem-solving strategies to prevent a person's unmet economic or environmental needs from developing into legal – and health – crises. By providing robust group training and individual technical assistance to their teams, we equip our partners with the information, skills, and tools they need to link the people they serve with health-promoting benefits, services, and legal protections.
MLPB Legal Advisors are legal generalists responsible for supporting workforces across many domains of public interest law. MLPB’s "train-the-trainer" model is complementary to, but distinct from, more familiar (and essential) access to justice approaches such as direct legal representation of individual clients. (NOTE: Because MLPB and its staff do not provide direct legal representation to individuals, families, or classes of consumers, applicants seeking to practice law in this important way should not apply for this position.)
The Legal Advisor we recruit will join a passionate, talented team and advance MLPB’s mission and successful growth by anchoring an innovative, state-wide partnership with Healthy Families Massachusetts (HFM) – an intensive, evidence-based family support and parent coaching program for first-time parents during pregnancy and the first three years of a child’s life.
This position and its primary responsibilities will tap legal skills, project management skills, and social work skills, including but not limited to:
Quality Assurance and Improvement
