The mission of the Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless is to end the unnecessary suffering caused by poverty, and to advocate for justice for people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless in Washington, DC. We envision a just and inclusive community in Washington, DC. Over the years, the Legal Clinic has become a principal force in protecting the rights of homeless and other low-income people here in the District of Columbia, through a unique combination of direct representation, class action litigation and policy and budget advocacy, as well as community outreach, education and organizing. Ultimately, our goal is to bring an end to homelessness by improving the programs, benefits, resources and opportunities available to people challenged by the effects of poverty.
