Meeting the needs of our city's homeless and hurting people

Together we provide safe shelter, hot meals, medical care, job training and compassionate care to transform lives here in the Washington D.C., metropolitan area.

The Comprehensive Family Resource Center (CFRC)

Giving poor, hungry and homeless families a place to rebuild and discover hope through Jesus Christ.


Renewing hope, restoring family relationships and returning once-broken men to productive lives.


We are very excited to announce our 140th Anniversary Gala!


Homeless crisis in our capital

The homeless crisis in the District is one of the worst in the nation. The rising cost of urban living—intensified by the city’s need for more affordable housing and higher wages—has left more people on our streets than ever. Central Union Mission is committed to being a solution.



Founded in 1884, Central Union Mission is the oldest private social service agency in the District of Columbia.
