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

Shepherd’s Table’s Executive Director, Jacki Coyle, will be stepping down from her role on May 31, 2019, after 15 years of service to the organization and the Silver Spring community. Here is a message from Jacki Coyle:

Dear Friends,

Have you ever hit the reset button in your life? Have you ever stopped to give thanks in your life, and to say, “what is next?

After 15 years of service at Shepherd’s Table, I have hit the reset button in my own life. It is a bittersweet time but one which also fills me with immense gratitude, opens the door to new possibilities, and most importantly, new ways to impact our world!
