DC Hero: Central Union Mission
Founded 132 years ago, Central Union Mission operates several emergency shelter programs for the homeless and men, women, children, and seniors who are in need of assistance in DC, Maryland, and Virginia.
During my senior of year college, I had the pleasure of meeting with Johnnie Steele, who came to Central Union Mission in 2015 on his way to New York City to end his life. After seven months in the Spiritual Transformation program, Steele was offered a job with the shelter. Through this position, his life started to change. This video highlights his story.
