Silver Spring Cares works to strengthen the Silver Spring community through the power of connection.


We believe in the power of connection. Whether you are looking to donate items, donate funds, or donate time, Silver Spring Cares is the destination for information on community needs and opportunities for service. That by engaging these diverse needs and resources of our residents, we can create a community in which all may thrive.


Founded in 2017, Silver Spring Cares is the brainchild of Liz Brent, founder of Go Brent Real Estate. Having worked over 25 years as a realtor in Silver Spring, Liz was familiar with the diverse social, racial and economic landscape of our area. Between working with clients and raising her three active children, she was constantly amazed at the generosity of people to rise up and support each other in times of need. The apartment building fire and explosion in the summer of 2016 showed how powerful the generosity of Silver Spring residents could be. Always a people-connector, Liz sprung into action thinking of different ways to easily connect the needs of our more vulnerable neighbors with those who have the ability to give. Thus, Silver Spring Cares was born.
