Family Programs

The Family Ministry Center will remain open and committed to serving lost and hurting souls in our community—no matter what challenges we face.

  • Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, beginning September 1st, the FMC food distribution program will change temporarily to allow anyone with an ID to visit twice a month for food:
    • All distributions will be outside in the parking lot until further notice.
    • Relief and Restoration will follow the scheduled distribution dates. (Please check the calendar for dates.)
    • Distribution times are 10:00am and 1:00pm daily pr while supplies last.
    • Please provide your ID or membership card at check-in.
    • At the entrance gate, everyone is given a number. Only 10 people at a time are permitted to pick up their food.
    • At the Mission Market backdoor, participants check-in and receive a preassembled food cart.

We are accepting food donations and sanitizing items (hand sanitizer, isopropyl alcohol, Clorox wipes, Lysol, boxes of tissues, and N95 masks) at the Men’s Shelter located at 65 Mass Ave NW Washington, DC 20001.

All other gift-in-kind donations should be taken to our Family Ministry Center. Drop-Off Details 

The Family Ministry Center provides food and clothing to approximately 5,750 people per month (families, including many single mothers, grandparent care-givers and isolated senior citizens). We distribute groceries that provide over three million meals each year, and we provide computer training, legal aid, ESOL classes, Bible studies, life skills classes, services for senior citizens, parenting classes, baby showers, Christmas gifts, Thanksgiving supplies and more.

The Family Ministry Center (FMC) is a center where people struggling with insufficient food and clothing can find help.
