Why We Need Your Support
Montgomery County is one of the wealthiest counties in the United States. It can be easy to live here and ignore those who have been the most adversely effected by the struggling economy. The statistics, however, are hard to ignore. In Montgomery County, there are now: 120,000 uninsured residents without access to health care; there are 6,500 children living below the poverty line; and 1000 homeless with waiting lists of more than a decade for affordable housing. As the economy continues to struggle, the demand for services is increasing. The statistics of those served by CMR this past year are equally impressive: the Clinic treated 1971 residents and provided healthcare education to an additional 5,941 individuals; REAP provided financial assistance to 676 residents and 1992 referrals for services; LOP served 449 adults and 224 children; Elderly Ministries served 65 Rockville frail elderly residents of Rockville; and the Jefferson Housing Program celebrated its 20th anniversary of providing housing for men who would otherwise be homeless. We also organized 250 Thanksgiving Meals for Rockville residents. All of our work was accomplished with the help of volunteers and the support of the community.
