The Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless – a D.C.-based, locally-focused legal services and advocacy organization – seeks to hire a Development Assistant who shares our vision of a just and inclusive community for all residents of D.C., where housing is a human right and where every individual and family has access to the resources they need to thrive.

The Legal Clinic’s mission is to use the law to make justice a reality for our neighbors who struggle with homelessness and poverty. Combining community lawyering and advocacy to achieve our clients’ goals, our staff and network of volunteer attorneys provide low barrier legal services, helping our clients access housing, shelter, and other vital supports and services. Rooted in the experience of this client work, we blend system reform efforts, policy advocacy, client engagement and community education to advocate for long term improvements in programs that serve those who are homeless and low-income.

The Development Assistant will work closely with the Legal Clinic’s Director of Communications and Development to support the organization’s fundraising efforts and donor stewardship, as well as assist with creative and strategic efforts to raise the profile of the Legal Clinic and expand our network of supporters. These activities will include backend administrative tasks such as tracking donations and donor information, as well as supporting the organization’s fundraising communications plan. This is a new position with potential for growth.
