IMPACT Silver Spring
IMPACT Silver Spring is a non-profit located in the heart of downtown Silver Spring. IMPACT was founded in 1999 to support the Silver Spring community as it faced the challenges and opportunities presented by extreme demographic and economic change; our mission is to create the capacity needed to build and sustain a thriving, multicultural Silver Spring.
Today, Silver Spring has one of the country’s most diverse populations and continues to grow and develop rapidly. In this context, IMPACT works to build new and different structures, practices and networks to ensure that all parts of the community thrive. By working to bring diverse people together, we engage new voices, develop leaders through training and support, build awareness in current leaders, and spark collaboration and action to bring about positive change in our neighborhoods, schools, civic, and community circles.
