DC Center Moves Into JBG Whitman Walker site

DC Center, an LGBT community service organization, has found a temporary new home in two former Whitman Walker Clinic properties on 14th Street owned by JBG Properties. "This particular spot is really well known to the LGBT community and is really in the heart of the community," said David Mariner, DC Center's Executive Director and only full-time staff member.

"Due to the economic climate which has prevented immediate development, JBG Properties has generously offered the space to DC Center on a temporary basis," the DC Center posted on its blog last month.

The Center offers programs related to education, political advocacy, HIV/AIDS, drug rehabilitation, the arts, and violence prevention, among others.
