Homelessness and poverty are among the most painful and challenging issues facing our community today. The destructive hardship, hunger and hopelessness faced by the broken and vulnerable men, women and children in our city is profound. Regrettably, Washington, DC, has one of the highest rates of homelessness in the nation.
For more than 135 years, Central Union Mission has been a leader in serving people experiencing homelessness and poverty in Washington, DC. Compelled by our Christian faith, the Mission was initially founded with the goal of serving homeless veterans of the Civil War. Over time, our work has grown substantially to serve men, women and children in need in our nation’s capital. Today, we remain 100 percent privately-funded and operate four facilities that provide a world-class platform to achieve long-term, sustainable and systemic change in the lives of the people we serve, while daily meeting the immediate needs of the chronically homeless and those at-risk of homelessness and poverty.
Central Union Mission needs the support of partners like you to continue providing shelter and critical services for the homeless and needy. These Naming Opportunities offer supporters various opportunities to make Named Gifts to demonstrate their concern for those in need, to honor a special individual or to memorialize a loved one.
Your gift of love will be recognized with an attractive inscription displayed in a prominent area. This recognition will serve as a lasting testament of your selfless compassion and generosity toward neighbors experiencing homelessness and people in need.
