The Fox 5 News “Zip Trip” series visits a different locale in or around Washington, D.C., each week during the summer, providing viewers with a snapshot of its sights, residents and offerings. When the TV crew set up at Washington Harbour June 9, Fox 5 honored Georgetown Ministry Center as the neighborhood’s “Hometown Hero,” recognizing the organization’s work since 1987 seeking lasting solutions to homelessness in the community.
Said the nonprofit: “Georgetown Ministry Center’s mission is to guide service-resistant, chronically homeless individuals towards stability and housing through aggressive street outreach, provision of a safe and welcoming environment where everyone is treated with respect, and advocacy for the homeless.” Among others interviewed by the anchors during their more than three-hour stay were Ward 2 Council member Jack Evans and Stephen Full, head coach of Georgetown University’s women’s rowing team.
