Rhodia Thomas

Executive Director

MidPenn Legal Services

A legal aid advocate for three decades, Thomas has been in her current position for 18 years. 

“My primary duties include leading, oversight and management of an 18-county nonprofit legal aid organization,” she said, “with a mission of providing civil legal services to low-income residents and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.” 

Thomas said an accomplishment that stands out is “maintaining services for our clients throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.” 

For fun, she enjoys being with family, especially her two young grandsons. “I love reading, and traveling to the places about which I have read,” she said, where she gets to interact with and learn about other cultures.
