Description

Charlie's Place is an outreach ministry of St. Margaret's Episcopal Church in Northwest Washington, DC. In 1990 the program was founded by the Reverend Charles Gilchrist to serve the homeless and poor around the church. When Reverend Gilchrist died in 1999, the Homeless Breakfast Program was renamed in his honor. The program has evolved to include social services, outreach services, legal services, health education, writing classes and other related services.
