Our legal team is here to help you break through legal barriers to achieve improved health and wellness outcomes and all services are provided free of charge. We work with patients, people living with HIV, and members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex communities.
We can help with health insurance appeals, work disputes, discrimination, Social Security disability applications and appeals, public benefits appeals (ADAP, Medicaid, Medicare, SNAP/Food Stamps), immigration matters, powers of attorney and wills, elder issues, medical privacy, and identity documents for trans and gender expansive clients, among other problems.
If you are facing any of the legal issues described above, call our Legal Services program at 202.939.7630 to complete an intake interview or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our full offering of services include:
Please note that all clients must complete a thorough intake interview for their case to be considered. You should call 202.939.7630 or email email@example.com to schedule this intake appointment. Intakes can be completed by phone. We offer interpretation services, including ASL, for all clients.
Anyone interested in volunteering with us should email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your resume, your areas of interest, any relevant experience, your active bar memberships, if any, and your language skills. We are especially in need of Spanish-speaking volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering for Whitman-Walker Health with other programs, please visit our Volunteer page.
We also welcome you to read more about our fundraising efforts which depend on people like you – generous supporters from the legal and queer and allied communities whose gifts enable us to reach nearly 3,000 clients every year. Helping clients keep their jobs by fighting harassment, helping clients keep their housing by solving problems with the Social Security Administration, and helping clients stay safe by securing lawful immigration status or accurate identity documents are all reasons why we do what we do. And you can be a part of this work by giving your time, talent, and resources. We need you! And we thank our amazing community for your generous support going back to 1986!
