“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
~ Dr. Seuss, “The Lorax”
When you support the Legal Clinic, you are giving our clients the dignity and stability that for so long have eluded them. You are giving a struggling parent the opportunity to walk through her own front door at night into a place of calm and security for her family. You are giving community members the chance to bring their voices into the public discourse that impacts their lives. When you support the Legal Clinic, you are giving a gift of justice.
This work cannot be done without you. We receive no government funding and depend on the support of individual donors like you. We need your partnership to make justice a reality for those who have struggled with the injustice of homelessness.

Lawyers Pitch In (LPI)
Since 2000, hundreds of lawyers and legal assistants from dozens of DC law firms have taken to the diamond for a charity softball tournament, showing that lawyers can “pitch in” to bring an end to homelessness. In total, LPI has raised more than $300,000 to support the Legal Clinic’s important work.
Home Court 30
Home Court 30 is set for March 22, 2017! Come out to watch Members of Congress (the Hill’s Angels) compete against the Georgetown Law Center’s Hoya Lawyas, in a basketball game that raises funds to support the Legal Clinic’s important work. Join us at Gonzaga College High School, 19 Eye Street, NW, just a few blocks north of the Capitol. Doors open at 7pm; tip-off is at 8pm.
Since 1988, Senators and Representatives have tipped-off against the faculty and administration of the Georgetown University Law Center (GULC) in a fiercely competitive charity basketball game, organized by the GULC Law Students, to benefit the Legal Clinic. Featuring the bi-partisan, bi-cameral Hill’s Angels and GULC’s Hoya Lawyas, Home Court has become the Legal Clinic’s primary source of financial support, with law firms and individual donors generously sponsoring the event. Since its inception, Home Court has raised over $7.8 million. No matter the final score, the Legal Clinic’s clients are the ultimate victors!
More information can be found at the Law Student’s Facebook page, or by contacting the Legal Clinic at 202-328-5500. You can support Home Court 30 by clicking here and noting “HC30” on the dedication line.
You don’t have to be a world leader or a billionaire to give back. #GivingTuesday is about ordinary people coming together doing extraordinary things.
