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

How Can I Get Involved?  There are many ways to support our work: as a volunteer, in-kind or financial donor, attend our events, or join us as an event sponsor! 


Shepherd’s Table’s New Executive Director

The Shepherd’s Table Board is excited to announce that it has hired a new Executive Director, Manuel “Manny” Hidalgo, who will start work July 8. His hiring follows an extensive, nation-wide search process. Manny succeeds Jacki Coyle, who announced earlier this year that she would be stepping down as Executive Director; during Jacki’s successful 15 year tenure, the budget and volume of services at Shepherd’s Table roughly tripled.

We look forward to introducing Manny to our clients, partners, volunteers and other stakeholders over the next several weeks! In the meantime, we are very grateful that Jacki Coyle will continue to lead the organization in an Interim Executive Director role to ensure smooth, uninterrupted operations during this important transition period. To learn more about Manny, read the press release.
