The Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless, Inc.
November 17, 2010
I am a new volunteer for the Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless. I admire the professionalism and passionate advocacy of the clinic's staff to serve the most vulnerable citizens of our community. I have seen first-hand the positive impact of the clinic's advocacy to help people get the services they need. The clinic participates in educating the community about homelessness as well as doing outreach to recruit volunteers. They do a superb job of training pro bono attorneys and working with us to help the clients.

I can't think of anything to improve the important work the clinic performs now except recruit more volunteers to represent clients and support their advocacy efforts. They have the legal expertise to represent clients in certain areas and advocacy experience to make sure the needs of the poor are not ignored by the D.C. government. This is a terrific organization!
Volunteer & I advocated for better living conditions for women living in a particular shelter. I remained persistent and consulted with the clinic staff attorneys for advice. .
