About IMPACT Silver Spring


Our Vision

A thriving multicultural community where everyone has a full and quality life because everyone is engaged, connected, and exercising individual and collective power.

Our Mission

To build and sustain community-based networks that ignite local inclusive economies and vibrant communities.

Our Theory of Change

We believe positive change happens by connecting people, building relationships of trust, and exchanging value in an intentional network, across lines of difference. We believe that with enough intentionality, compassion, and practice, a mixed income, mixed culture community can thrive.

Our Values

  • We are human beings first. Our professional positions and identity are secondary.
  • We take time to build relationships, and relate to each other from a place of trust.
  • We build relationships that are mutual and reciprocal. We believe that everyone has something to offer others, and something they need from others.
  • We focus on strengths and opportunities, and actively bring forward everyone's gifts and talents.
