Financial support from our community of supporters has sustained Whitman-Walker for fifty years. The Foundation works to build on that legacy by maintaining, nurturing and creating relationships that ensure our future growth and sustainability. Together, we can provide care to even more of our neighbors. Together, we can finally end the HIV epidemic through research and community health education. We need support from individuals, community organizations and corporations to make it happen. In short…We Need You!

Our New Initiative

The urgent need for Whitman-Walker’s community healthcare services has never been higher. And with your generosity, together we can ensure these needs will be met.

In partnership with your support:

We will tackle the unrelenting issues of racial inequity in healthcare in Wards 7 and 8. Whitman-Walker is embarking on a transformative expansion at St. Elizabeths East Campus. This expansion, which is expected to open in late 2023, will greatly enhance health care and supportive services that we currently deliver at the Max Robinson Center in Anacostia and at the Youth Services site on Capitol Hill. The expansion will significantly improve access to care for DC residents who live east of the Anacostia River and specifically tackle health disparities and service delivery inequities that persist in Wards 7 and 8.

Once completed, this expansion will provide vital services to more than 15,000 persons each year—a 200% increase from our current capacity of 5,000 individuals at the existing Max Robinson Center and Youth Services site. This expansion will offer affirming, patient-centered program space and replace the facilities at the Max Robinson Center and Youth Services site. The expansion will be housed in a newly constructed 116,000 square foot building located at 12th and Alabama Avenue SE in Congress Heights. The neighborhood health center will operate in 65,000 square feet of space and the institute and community collaborations will be housed in the remaining 51,000 square feet. Construction is expected to begin in 2021.

we need you.

Your gift to the Whitman-Walker Foundation helps ensure we continue to be a place where the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer communities – as well as those living with or affected by HIV – feel supported, welcomed and respected. Your generosity helps us to fight stigma and save lives every day.
