IMPACT Silver Spring (www.impactsilverspring.org) strengthens social networks in diverse neighborhoods that lead to people and communities that are healthier, more economically stable and more engaged in civic participation. Its Opportunity Circles support small cohorts of residents working together to form new businesses, improve their neighborhood conditions and achieve personal development goals.
