Our mission is to create the environments and capacity needed to build and sustain a thriving, multicultural Silver Spring.

IMPACT Silver Spring was created in 1999 to support the Silver Spring, Maryland, community as it faced the challenges and opportunities presented by extreme demographic and economic change.

IMPACT brings people together across lines of race, class, and culture to collaborate and share power for positive change.

Currently, our major projects focus on building successful multicultural schools and on the transformation of social service delivery in Montgomery County.
