We are temporarily stopping receipt of gift-in-kind donations at our shelter with the exception of the following items: hand sanitizer, isopropyl alcohol, Clorox wipes, Lysol, boxes of tissues, and N95 masks. These items should be dropped off at the Men’s Shelter located at 65 Mass Ave NW Washington, DC 20001.

We will continue to accept gift-in-kind donations at our Family Ministry Center. (FMC Drop-off Instructions)

The Family Ministry Center provides food and clothing to approximately 4000 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.
