We are sad to report the passing of William McNeal. Bill was an important part of the GMC community, and many of you will remember him sitting outside the Center avidly reading for hour after hour. He was smart, witty and always had a joke which was seldom repeatable in polite company. The jokes he learned from his years as a DC bartender. Bill was recently housed and loved his new place. We are so sad that he could not enjoy it for longer. He was a truly good soul and we will miss him.

On Friday, June 9th, Georgetown Ministry Center received Fox 5 DC’s “Hometown Hero” award, which recognized GMC for its ongoing efforts to provide assistance, advocacy and services for the homeless in our community. GMC’s Executive Director, Gunther Stern, was interviewed during the “Hometown Hero” segment of Fox’s summer Zip Trip Series, which features a different neighborhood in the DMV each week. GMC thanks its staff, board and volunteers for their ongoing contributions, without which we couldn’t continue to do the important work of aiding our homeless brothers and sisters in need. This award is for you!
