Review for The Shepherd's Table, Inc., Silver Spring, MD, USA
Shepherd's Table has an amazing history that continues to this day. For 27 years, it has been serving a daily hot dinner: 365 days a year, through snow and power outages, never missing a single night. In addition, there is a free clothes closet; a resource desk providing medical and counseling support, including a bilingual counselor; and an eye clinic. The head of the resource room has been dedicating his life to the job for 20 years. All of the staff, along with a large core of volunteers, are committed to the mission of Shepherd's Table, ensuring that clients are treated respectfully as they are assisted with their needs.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
watching the appreciation of the clients as they thank the volunteers for serving and compliment the cook on the cooking.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
give it a larger budget to provide more services.
