Named to honor John and Erna Steinbruck, co-founders of N Street Village, the Steinbruck Center at Luther Place was started in 2001 as a means to educate people on the N Street Village model and share the history of Luther Place Memorial Church. Though it continues to draw from those aspects of its past, the Steinbruck Center is expanding to reach people of all age groups through a variety of programs that address homelessness and poverty, specifically in the Washington, D.C. area.
The Steinbruck Center provides transformative education, experiential learning, community living, and service opportunities for youth, students, and adults to engage in social justice through the context of poverty and homelessness. We offer a variety of volunteer and educational opportunities for middle school, high school, college, seminary, and mission trips. We provide strong direct service, quality education, experiential learning, accompaniment, and reflection. We work with groups to provide experiences that last anywhere from a half day up to two weeks.
The Center works to immerse volunteers in the Luther Place, N St Village, and Logan Circle communities, and we also partner with community organizations to connect volunteers with opportunities that address the needs of Washingtonians experiencing homelessness and poverty across the city.
