FATHER MCKENNA CENTER INC

Serving DC's Poor

To accompany and care for families struggling with poverty and men facing homelessness by providing food, shelter, clothing and services to support their journey toward stability, productivity, meaning and hope, building upon the good works, ideals and values of Father Horace McKenna, S.J.

The Father McKenna Center carries on the legacy of Rev. Horace B. McKenna, SJ, Washington's "priest to the poor."

We operate three programs that directly serve some of DC's most marginalized citizens:

A Day Drop-In Center for men struggling with homelessness that provides two meals, clothing, showers, laundry services, access to mail, phone and computers. These services are offered to engage each man in a counselling relationship with a Case Manager who assists each man to develop strategies to end his experience of homelessness.

A Hypothermia Program (Nov. 1 to Apr. 1) that offers up to 20 men a safe, secure and small night shelter. The program is focused on getting the participants to take the "right next step" to end his experience of homelessness by the end of the season. 

A Food Pantry for very low income residents of DC's Ward 6. The program offers nonperishable good, and milk, eggs, fresh bread, fresh produce and meat.
