Welcome to Shepherd’s Table!


Our Mission: Shepherd’s Table is a nonprofit organization in downtown Silver Spring, supported by volunteers, religious organizations, government, businesses, foundations, and individual donors. Our 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. 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.

Our Programs: We provide a range of services for those in need within our community, including: a nutritious meal every day, 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.

How Can I Help?  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! Feel free to visit us for a tour, read through our newsletters or call us with questions!
