We work to uproot racism, a major cause of poverty. We are committed to treating our clients with the dignity and respect that all people deserve.

Bread for the City’s Legal Clinic works to ensure better access to justice for individuals in our nation’s capital.  The Legal Clinic provides front-line civil legal services primarily in three areas of law: housing, family, and public benefits.

Superior Court, attorneys may take on administrative hearing work representing participants in federal subsidy programs or at the District’s Office of Administrative Hearings.
