The Need:

Located in downtown Silver Spring, Shepherd’s Table serves individuals from all walks of life, experiencing a unique set of challenges, from homelessness, unemployment, mental health challenges, substance abuse, physical disabilities, and more. 

Shepherd’s Table is at the beginning of the Continuum of Care, offering basic human services and providing a strong safety net for people experiencing homelessness. Along with partner agencies in the County, Shepherd’s Table is working towards preventing and ending homelessness for all residents.

How Can I Get Involved?

There are many ways to support our work: Since 1983, Shepherd’s Table has been a necessary and effective resource welcoming and serving those in need within Silver Spring, and is largely supported by private donations from individuals, businesses, foundations, and religious organizations. Located in a building owned by Montgomery County, we also receive financial support from Montgomery County and the Maryland Emergency Food Program.
