This summer we have had the privilege of partnering with the McKenna Center to serve homeless individuals in our city! This day shelter is located off North Capitol, and although they are open every Monday-Friday, they are only able to operate on Saturdays through the help of volunteer groups. We will continue to work with the McKenna Center with upcoming service dates of 10/24, 11/28 and 12/12! Let’s show up ready to impact the DC community one life at a time as we serve these men and show them they are valued!
The shelter connects individuals with food, clothing, rehabilitation, medical attention, case managers, and other needed services. They also provide job search assistance, support in reuniting with family members, and mail reception. Their food pantry and clothing store are designed to help instill pride, responsibility, and value in their clients while working to meet their needs. By partnering with them, we are able to walk alongside men who are making positive changes to turn their lives around and support them in their efforts to achieve their goals!
