In spite of its reputation as one of the wealthiest communities in the nation, Montgomery County is also home to vulnerable residents in need of assistance. For 46 years, Community Ministries of Rockville has provided safety net services for them and for their families. Its Mansfield Kaseman Health Clinic works with low income uninsured adults, offering primary care and specialty services -- and caring for the county's uninsured homeless women. The Rockville Emergency Assistance Program offers referrals to residents in financial crisis (food, clothing, prescriptions) and a family-based Language Outreach Program brings literacy and citizenship classes to adults, as well as the childcare that makes it possible for them to attend. Permanent supportive housing offers everything from case management to education about healthy relationships. The Elderly Ministries Program helps frail residents live safely and independently in their own homes: laundry, light cleaning, grooming assistance, food deliveries and weekly check-ins, make this possible. Together, these programs have improved the lives of more than 63,000 individuals over four decades ... and the story is still being written.
