“Two are better than one, because they have a better return for their labor.”

--Ecclesiastes 4:9

Gospel Rescue Ministries is pleased to announce that we are combining our efforts with Central Union Mission. Together, we will continue to provide help and hope to our city’s neediest neighbors.

Central Union Mission shares our Lord’s command to serve the poor. The oldest social service agency in Washington, DC, Central Union Mission has a proven history of compassion. (Between our two organizations, we share 236 years of experience.) Central Union Mission’s stewardship ensures that the people we care for will be well served. No better organization exists than Central Union Mission to share our burden for “the least, the last and the lost.”

Please join with us as we work together, for “Two are better than one, because they have a better return for their labor.” (Ecclesiastes 4:9)


Stay Involved in the Work of Rescue

We invite our GRM financial supporters, volunteers, churches, community partners, organizations and other stakeholders to continue GRM’s mission by supporting Central Union Mission. With our combined forces we have a better opportunity to reach out to those who need our help. GRM’s assets will be moved to Central Union Mission’s stewardship. The Gospel Mission House (formerly the Fulton House of Hope) has been renamed in honor of GRM’s service, and the Lambert House will continue to provide five apartment units for needy families.

GRM’s Ready to Work program will also continue under Central Union Mission’s management. This successful program currently employs homeless men and women in cleaning neighborhoods in the city. Sally Cox, Gospel Rescue Ministries’ former chief financial officer, joins Central Union Mission as director of finance. For more information about our merger, please contact Sally Cox or David Treadwell, executive director of Central Union Mission.
