On January 11, the United Way of the National Capital Area (United Way NCA) awarded grants totaling $358,271 to twenty member organizations serving the District of Columbia.
Georgetown Ministry Center was one of the lucky beneficiaries this year! We received a grant award of $15,000 for our winter shelter, which will provide ten homeless individuals shelter in a warm caring environment, meals, access to psychiatric and general practitioner services, individualized case management, and shower and laundry services for seventy nights. Meals are prepared and served by approximately 700 volunteers from ten participating congregations who host the shelter. GMC has been successfully operating its shelter, which runs from November through March, since 1993.
