McIver Ready For Challenges After 15 Years

With demand for services growing and money tight, Harrison McIver faces a tough challenge as he enters his 15th year as executive director of Memphis Area Legal Services Inc. But the fire that drove him to public service remains strong, the Memphis Daily News reports. “My elevator pitch is that we help keep people from being homeless,” McIver says. “We help keep food on the table. We help extricate people from abusive situations. We help people who may be on their last leg and needing public benefits. This is our challenge.”
