Bilingual Dispute Resolution Clinic

Organization: Central American Resource Center

As part of an initiative launched in 2011, in partnership with the D.C. Superior Court, CARECEN offers bilingual dispute resolution services on-site twice a month to individuals with employment, consumer, tenant, and other issues.

This is a free, by-appointment clinic in CARECEN’s offices, held on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month. Community members with disputes involving unpaid wages, neighbor conflicts, tenant problems (security deposits and repairs), consumer problems (with vendors, contractors, auto shops, etc.), or other monies owed between individuals are pre-screened by CARECEN staff and scheduled for interviews with the Bilingual Dispute Resolution Specialist the day of the clinic. To be assisted during the clinic, at least one of the parties involved in the dispute must live or do business in D.C.
