Our Mission: Shepherd’s Table’s mission is to provide help to people who are homeless or in need by providing basic services, including meals, social services, medical support, clothing, and other assistance in an effective and compassionate manner. Since 1983, Shepherd’s Table has been a necessary and effective resource welcoming and serving those in need within Silver Spring, and is supported by volunteers, religious organizations, government, businesses, foundations, and individual donors. We build upon our successful strategy to make the community a better place for our clientele and others to live, work, and operate a business. 

All are welcome here. 

Our Programs: We provide a range of services for those in need within our community, including: serving breakfast, lunch and dinner during the week, and brunch and dinner on weekends, clothing/toiletries, access to vision care, a resource center to check mail, use the telephone, get prescription assistance, and much more. We also have a bi-lingual counselor on-site.IMG_5705
