Charlie's Place has been serving our homeless neighbors in Washington, DC since 1990.
We help feed, house, find employment and healthcare for those in need.
Charlie’s Place was founded in 1990 as a non-denominational, anti-hunger, homeless ministry of St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church by St. Margaret’s associate pastor, and Mongomery County Executive, the late Charles Gilchrist. Although Charlie’s Place resides at an Episcopal Church our focus is to address social needs and not religious ones. Charlie’s Place takes special care in welcoming all people of any race, age, gender, background, faith or sexual orientations without judgment or evangelization of any kind.
Charlie’s Place provides not only a hot breakfast Tuesday through Friday mornings from 6:30 a.m. to 8:15 a.m., but also supportive services for our participants. The Charlie’s Place Program Manager coordinates case management, street outreach, housing and job search assistance. A nurse from Unity Healthcare visits the program weekly to provide access to medical care. Volunteers organize and manage the clothes closet and help with every aspect of Charlie’s Place.
