Robert Hamner, Jr.

I came to Central Union Mission May 17, 2011, straight from the DC Jail, after sitting 30 days for not applying with the DC Probation Board. My family found Central Union Mission and asked Pastor Lewis and Chaplain Don Ross for help. The Mission took me in like the Prodigal Son. Since I've been at the Mission, God and my mother have been with me every step of the way.

The Mission has helped me to read and study the Bible, to pray and to fellowship and love my brother. They showed me how to give back to the homeless and the less fortunate. By doing these things I see how much God and the Mission have turned me into a better man for the Lord.
