Michigan Community Resources (MCR) is a statewide nonprofit organization that seeks to build strong communities through strong organizations, strong leaders, and a strong nonprofit network. Since 1998, we have equipped nonprofit organizations serving income-diverse communities with the tools, resources, training, and consulting they need to do their best work.
Joining the MCR Team:
We are community organizers, artists, writers, activists, advocates, people connectors, and more who share a fierce passion for Detroit and Michigan. We bring experience from across the globe to serve our clients. We value a positive internal team culture that is supportive and encouraging. We promote a healthy work life balance that supports our team members in centering life outside of work. We welcome energetic and innovative thought leaders to apply.
MCR’s Legal Programs:
MCR has been providing legal services to nonprofits in Michigan for over 25 years. Through this work, MCR fosters movements to build power in communities impacted by systemic oppression. Nonprofits, especially small, grassroots organizations, are often unable to access crucial legal support due to prohibitive costs. MCR works to close this gap by providing a range of legal services, including a pro bono referral system in partnership with the private bar, legal clinics, workshops, educational publications, and more.
Reporting to the Director of Legal Programs, the Legal Program Assistant will play an integral role in establishing and maintaining systems that will best serve MCR’s clients, maintain confidentiality, and allow MCR’s legal programs to thrive. A successful Legal Program Assistant possesses excellent detail-oriented organizational skills and excels at professional, empathetic communication with a wide range of stakeholders. The Legal Program Assistant thrives in a collaborative environment working on multiple projects and prefers to work as part of a team. They are comfortable working in a hybrid environment with primarily remote work and periodic in-person activities and meetings, mostly in Detroit, Michigan. The ideal candidate shares MCR’s values of community rootedness, trust, equity, strength, and service. Crucially, they are passionate about the importance and impact of the nonprofit sector in Michigan.
