Welcome to Central Union Mission "Feeding & Caring for Metro DC's Poor & Hungry"

 

 

About Us

Central Union Mission is the oldest social service agency in the District of Columbia. It was founded in 1884 by the Reverend Latham Douglass, a young man filled with compassion for the thousands of homeless, neglected men who wandered Pennsylvania Avenue, many of whom were Civil War veterans.

Since 1884, the Mission has continuously operated an emergency shelter for homeless men and been a place for spiritual uplift and recovery. It has survived the Great Depression, two world wars, 24 presidential administrations, neighborhood transitions, and numerous relocations.

The Mission Today

Today, Central Union Mission is a faith-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with four locations throughout the Washington area. It operates an 18-month rehabilitation program for men with life-controlling issues, a free meals program, a clothing and furniture distribution center, and a 220-acre retreat center with a camp for underprivileged children and recreation facilities for the community.

The Mission is continually developing its programs to meet the changing needs of the community. Its current programs serve homeless men, underprivileged women, children, seniors, veterans and the growing Hispanic community.

One life at a time, the Mission works to help transform the area's toughest rehabilitation cases, including drug addicts, gang members, criminal offenders, and the chronically homeless into productive members of society. The Mission's programs have an extremely high success rate at helping individuals overcome addiction and homelessness, and achieve independent living.

 


What We Do

At any given moment there are as many as 12,000 men, women and children in the Washington area living without a home. Everyday, there are people who are "falling through the cracks" of our society, ending up in shelters, in transitional housing or on the streets. Many of these people have often been hit with a job loss, illness, domestic violence or eviction-all things that could happen to any of us.

Most face not only homelessness, but an increasing sense of hopelessness. Mission Statement: To glorify God by proclaiming the Gospel and meeting the needs of hungry, hurting and homeless individuals and families in the Washington Metropolitan Area.

Our Work

Our work at Central Union Mission is to proclaim the Gospel, lead people to Christ, develop disciples and work to meet the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of the people we serve.

We display a gracious, sincere spirit of integrity and Christian love in everything we do. By displaying excellence in all aspects of this ministry, we honor God and inspire the people we serve, our community, donors, volunteers and staff.

What We Do

The lives of tens of thousands of men, women and children have been changed for the better by the Mission's time-tested programs. The faithful and generous support of our donors makes it possible for us to:

Feed the hungry: We provide free meals at least three times every day and distribute free food and groceries through our Food Depot program.

Serve the poor: The mission serves homeless men, underprivileged families, women, children and youth, seniors, veterans, Hispanic families, and others in need.

Provide a place of rest: We provide a safe night's sleep for overnight guests, and a 220-acre retreat and conference center for rest and recreation.

Give to those in need: Families and individuals rely on the Mission's food assistance program in emergencies and as a steady source of food. In partnership with individuals, corporations and churches, the Mission distributes more than $5 million-worth of in-kind food, toiletries, clothing, household items and furniture each year.

Heal the brokenhearted: The mission operates an 18-month recovery program to restore once-broken men to productive lives.

Help needy children: Children are served through a number of community outreach programs, including meals with their families, a residential summer camp, and a program that provides free toys and clothes at Christmas.

Invest in others: The Mission's free programs provide English language instruction, GED preparation, health consultations and vocational support.

Show we care: We celebrate the forgotten and friendless at programs and events throughout the year.
