A Wider Circle
A Wider Circle furnishes the homes of more than 4,000 families a year, equalling more than 15,000 children and adults each year whose homes are transformed from empty spaces into furnished homes. We also provide comprehensive job preparedness support, including resume assistance, unlimited professional attire and accessories and long-term job coaches.

Central Union Mission
The Mission glorifies God by proclaiming and teaching the Gospel, developing disciples, and serving hungry, hurting, and homeless adults and children in the Washington, D.C., area by providing food, shelter, comfort, and Christian counselling. Executive Director David Treadwell frequently visits All Saints to speak.
This established 33-bed facility and organization, located in the Adams Morgan neighbourhood of Washington, D.C., provides temporary housing and medical treatment to the homeless community, as well as a host of other support, counselling, and day services. All Saints’ parishioners provide a nutritious dinner to the residents of Christ House every fourth Monday of the month. Casseroles must be dropped off at church the Sunday before Monday delivery. Recipes available. Many other volunteer opportunities exist at Christ House.
CCHFP helps rebuild and sustain the lives of those who are, have been or are at risk of being homeless in northwest Washington, D.C., by providing food, transitional or permanent housing, mental health counselling, help for addiction, and medical referrals.
Interfaith Works runs the Wilkins Avenue Women’s Shelters in Rockville. One week per year, teams of All Saints volunteers provide dinners, bag lunches and breakfast supplies for 30+ homeless female shelter residents.

On the second Saturday of every month, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., volunteers from All Saints prepare lunches for the many who come seeking relief from hunger and poverty at the corner of 14th and V Streets, N.W., in Washington, D.C. At Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, parishioners also provide cooked whole turkeys, chickens, and hams. Look and listen for announcements in church, in the announcement bulletin, and in the News and Events section of the web site.

Rebuilding Together (formerly Christmas in April) has long been one of All Saints great community service activities. For more than 20 years, we have financially sponsored either the Montgomery County branch or the Washington, D.C., branch of this nationwide service organization. More importantly, we provide volunteers to work on one or several houses in our community that need some TLC. We paint, repair walls, re-cover floors, replace windows, haul trash, clean, and do all sorts of other work to help those in need. And frankly, through all the work, dust, and grime, we have a great time!

Founded by 12 Episcopal parishes in 1986, including All Saints, Samaritan Ministry of Greater Washington (SMGW) now serves the homeless and others in need at three locations in the Washington area, allowing Partner Parishes to do more together than they could individually. In addition to emergency services, SMGW provides counselling, medical care (including people with AIDS and who are HIV-positive), assistance with job hunting, and many other services designed to bring about permanent, positive change by empowering individuals to achieve more than they otherwise would be able to.
