Alicia Skeeter

Case Manager

Alicia Skeeter is a Case Manager in the Housing Law Unit. Alicia works to supplement the legal assistance provided to clients by helping them identify any additional services they might need, navigate various social services in the city, and coordinate with other agencies to ensure the best outcome for their households. Alicia has been trained in trauma informed care, homeless services, and drug/alcohol recovery support.

Prior joining Legal Aid in May 2018, Alicia worked for 4 years in homeless shelter services, providing case management to over 300 individuals and families experiencing homelessness or housing crises. Alicia also spent 2 years working at a safe haven as an advocate for individuals with a severe and persistent mental health diagnosis who were facing housing instability.

Between 2012 and 2013, Alicia was a part of the AmeriCorps Program Public Allies, a national movement committed to advancing social justice and equity by engaging and activating the leadership of all young people. During her apprenticeship with Public Allies-Milwaukee, Alicia served with a local non-profit as a resource specialist using asset-based community development to recognize resident stake holders and forward key community services in that area. Upon completing her apprenticeship, Alicia was hired to manage a federal grant called The Building Neighborhood Capacity Program. In this role, she galvanized local leaders to organize a neighborhood association, “Amani United”, a group still active in 2018.

Alicia graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a B.S. in Community Engagement and Education. At UWM, she was involved in local political activism, and was selected to be a part of a commemoration of the 1961 Freedom Rides alongside 40 fellow undergraduate students from across the country, sponsored by The Public Broadcasting Services. Alicia was the recipient of the James and Yvonne Ziemer Scholarship from the School of Education for academic merit.

Alicia is most excited about the eviction defense work she is a part of with Legal Aid and looks forward to the opportunity to support the wonderful people of the District of Columbia.
