Community leader Edward Guinan elevated homelessness to a national issue


Between the White House and the U.S. Capitol -- a two-mile terrain where inaugural parades along Pennsylvania Avenue are staged for new presidents -- lies the homeless belt of America. At various sites, the Father McKenna Center, Mount Carmel House, House of Ruth, Dorothy Day Catholic Worker House, Zacchaeus Community Kitchen, Rachel's Women's Center, N Street Village and the Capital Area Food Bank have been among the havens where beds, meals and other mercies are available to people who need and deserve them.
