Intentional growth at Metropolitan starts with our strategic, inclusive and forward-thinking leadership. Both fresh and familiar faces are coming together, in the spirit of collaboration that defines Metropolitan’s approach to community growth, to refresh the ways we create new opportunities and increase access to our existing opportunities for the children and families we serve.

“With his extensive background in law, immigration, human trafficking and in unifying the equally important work of legal and social services, Miguel is the ideal choice to lead the Legal Aid Society and further our work in promoting “wraparound” services to help clients find lasting solutions.”
– Ric Estrada
» Growing LAS within Metropolitan
Understanding the relevance of legal aid to providing holistic support, LAS is further integrating legal help into the services all Metropolitan centers provide, from educating direct service staff on identifying clients’ potential legal needs to placing attorneys at the centers.

» Growing LAS’ scope and capacity
In expanding services related to immigration and domestic violence, both critical issues for many of the communities we serve, LAS is spearheading a major aspect of Metropolitan’s continuing efforts to evolve along with the needs of our children and families.
