The Family Ministry Center (FMC)

Alternate Name: FMC

Organization: Central Union Mission

The Family Ministry Center (FMC) is a center where people struggling with insufficient food and clothing can find help. It is Central Union Mission’s hub for family services in Washington, DC. Our large facility on Bladensburg Road houses a food bag assembly and distribution area, a free “shop” of donated clothing and housewares and a large meeting space. From this location, the Mission hosts its Relief & Restoration Program, its Operation Back Pack and Operation Christmas Miracle gifts programs for children as well as monthly Seniors Fellowships in both English and Spanish.

The Relief & Restoration Program (R & R) is designed to provide a community where needy, broken families and individuals have access to free resources that provide relief from such burdens. Our goal is to restore the hurting, hungry and lost community to being better, living wiser, knowing Jesus Christ. In addition to free food and clothing, the R & R program provides pastoral counsel, encouragement and prayer, an on-site social worker to help with special circumstances, and special events throughout the year.
