Casa Ruby

Support center for women of transgender experience.

The idea behind the formation of a organization run and led by transgender women of color came almost 30 years ago, when Ruby Corado first arrived to Washington, D.C. There, she found that there were no services to support her needs as a young transgender Latina immigrant. Today, Casa Ruby is the only LGBTQ bilingual and multicultural organization in the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area providing social services and programs catering to the most vulnerable in the city and surrounding areas. We offer a wide variety of programs and services, ranging from emergency housing to non-medical case management.
