Henson Creek Manor, one of Humphrey Management’s thriving communities located in Fort Washington, Maryland, is partnering with an urban youth ministry called City Gate. The non-profit runs a program called “Out-of-School-Time” at the family community. Currently, 20-25 children & youth are participating in this new program that began at the community in November of 2013. City Gate volunteers help students with homework, teach computer skills, assist with reading, and engage participants in fun science activities. The program is for students from 5-18 years of age.
City Gate comes to Henson Creek Manor two days per week, Mondays & Thursdays, and uses the community clubhouse for the activities. The group is also giving away free turkeys for Thanksgiving to residents who have signed up.
City Gate is a Washington, D.C. ministry, formed in 2001 by the sponsorship of Calvary Baptist Church. The program is currently located at Wisconsin Avenue Baptist Church in Northwest D.C.
