For 30 years, Charlie's Place has served breakfast to all who walk through its doors, providing more than 350,000 meals to our homeless and working poor neighbors in the Dupont Circle and Adams Morgan neighborhoods. To observe social distancing guidelines, some services, like art therapy and yoga, paused on March 17th: sit-down breakfasts became hot meals-to-go or bagged lunches containing bottled water, fruit, nutritious snacks, masks, toiletries, and sanitizer. (Sit-down meals will re-emerge when possible.) Housing, employment, and medical referrals are still available, and a physician is on-site on Wednesdays. Clothing donations are up, and guests have access to bathroom facilities and phone charging. Neighbors who have fallen on hard times receive bagged groceries and every Tuesday Charlie's Place passes out bagged lunches and clothing in Franklin Park. Here, hardship is met with generosity, fellowship, and compassion.
