Bethany Women's Center

It's hard to drive through Washington, D.C., without seeing the homeless sleeping on the grates, park benches, or in store doorways at night. Some of the homeless are able to stay overnight in a shelter. Some women, some of whom have children, are fortunate enough to find space at Luther Place, a shelter for women on Thomas Circle. During the day, most homeless are on their own. Bethany Women's Day Care Center provides support and meals to women during the day and is only one of two day care facilities serving meals to the homeless women in the District on Saturday and Sunday. Bethany relies on organizations like the church for food and support.

Every fourth Sunday of each month, church members prepare, deliver, and serve a complete dinner to 60 women at Bethany Women's Center. On Thanksgiving, church members prepare, deliver, and serve a full traditional meal to Bethany Center residents and nearby drop-ins.

How we participate:

1. We provide the recipe for a casserole (see download below).

2. The menu always remains the same and consists of chicken and rice casseroles, bananas, salad, rolls, juice, and dessert.

Directions to Bethany Women's Center:

Take Rt. 66 east to D.C. onto Constitution Ave., left (north) onto 12th or 13th Street, and left (west) onto N. Street NW, looking for 1333 N. St. NW on right of one-way street. Double park to take food, then find parking on street, maybe having to circle block(s). Better yet, follow the coordinator's van to site. Round trip time approximately 3 hours, 10:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m., every fourth Sunday. Sign up on bulletin board in the Information Center.


Bethany Women's Center is part of N. Street Village, a ministry founded by Luther Place Memorial Church. A year ago the ministry added Sojourner Truth House, a group home for dually-diagnosed women. Visits, additional volunteering, or individual contributions to N. Street Village can be arranged by contacting them directly: 202-939-2071.
