Groundbreaking at Old Gales School, To Become Central Union Mission

65 Massachusetts Avenue, NW

Council Member Jim Graham tweeted yesterday:

I am at the groundbreaking for the Central Union Mission. We are at the old Gales school at 65 Massachusetts Avenue.

Central Union Mission is the city’s oldest non-profit providing these types of shelter services to the homeless.

$12 million will be invested in Gales School. The money is from private sources. This will be a new home for the Central Union Mission.

No government money will be used in the renovation or operation of the old Gales School for the Central Union Mission.

The city will, however, lease the building to the Central Union Mission for $1 a year.

Central Union Mission is currently located in Logan Circle at the corner of 14th and R St, NW (1350 R Street, NW.)

They share renderings of the new location:
