OUR MISSION

MUM helps people in crisis in the Silver Spring, Wheaton, Kensington, Rockville and Aspen Hill communities with food, medicine, eviction prevention and utilities, emphasizing client choice, problem-solving and self- sufficiency.

WHO WE HELP

homeless familyMUM's clients come from zip codes 20902, 20906, 20895, 20896, and 20853. While Montgomery County is one of the most affluent counties in the nation, a large number of the working poor reside in the Aspen Hill (20906) and Wheaton (20902) sections of Silver Spring. Many of our clients are female heads of households with children, persons with disabilities, or elderly persons. Fluctuations in economic conditions can quickly add individuals and families to our client base.

WHO WE ARE

We Are Your Neighbors

Mid-County United Ministries (MUM) is an independent agency governed by a working Board of Directors that has provided a safety net for the working poor, the disabled, the elderly on fixed incomes, and in these difficult times, the unemployed, since 1996. We are a member of the Emergency Assistance Coalition, headed by Interfaith Works of Montgomery County.

Our goal is always to treat the people we serve with respect and show that they matter by giving them appropriate assistance. Choice is given to clients whenever possible, particularly in the selection of food.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY?

"They did not make me feel inadequate but treated me with dignity and respect."
