  • Mission:
  • CMR seeks to improve the quality of life for the most vulnerable of Montgomery County, Maryland residents by providing them with basic health and human services and advocating on their behalf, with the goal of helping them achieve and maintain self-sufficiency.

  • Overview:
  • CMR is a unique organization which, while being quite a small organization, manages to provide a vast array of direct services to those most in need in Montgomery County through the tireless dedication of its staff, volunteers and supporters. CMR provides healthcare to the low income uninsured, emergency financial assistance to residents in crisis, home care services for lower income elderly aging in place, supportive housing for the homeless, and English language/literacy and citizenship classes for immigrants.

    Although a small organization of thirteen fulltime staff members, CMR operates five separate human service programs, each of which meets a distinct community need but with the important advantage of being able to work collaboratively together to meet the diverse needs of the community and to make the most of its resources:

    (1) MANSFIELD KASEMAN HEALTH CLINIC (a subsidiary of CMR) provides health care and health care education to low income uninsured adult residents of Montgomery County, Maryland. In addition to primary care, laboratory and pharmacy services, the Kaseman Clinic offers in-house specialty services including Endocrinology, Dermatology, Podiatry and Behavioral Health. Patients in need of other specialty care are given referrals through reciprocal partnerships the Clinic has formed with other providers. In addition, the Kaseman Clinic is responsible to the County for providing health care to the County's uninsured homeless women. The Clinic also has an active community outreach program focusing on cancer prevention and nutrition education.
    (2) ROCKVILLE EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (REAP) provides emergency financial assistance to Rockville residents facing financial crisis such as eviction or utility shutoffs or in need of help with prescription costs, as well as referrals for all Montgomery County residents in need of social services (food, clothing, dental and vision care). The REAP office is located within the Kaseman Clinic, allowing patients to receive social and medical services at the same location, creating a true safety net.
    (3) ELDERLY MINISTRIES PROGRAM helps lower income frail elderly Rockville residents age in place, thus avoiding premature institutionalization, by providing for weekly home care services (laundry, light cleaning, grooming assistance, etc.), monthly deliveries of free food through Manna, weekly phone calls to check on clients, and Medical Response Systems. Elderly Ministries also provides necessary home repairs and modifications that allow clients to remain in their own homes, ranging from a simple installation of a shower grab bar to a complete handicap accessible bathroom renovation.
    (4) LANGUAGE OUTREACH PROGRAM (LOP) is a family based education program which offers English as a Second Language, English Literacy, and Citizenship classes to non-English speaking adult residents of Montgomery County, as well as childcare, preschool enrichment and tutoring for the children of LOP’s adult students. Lack of childcare is a barrier to literacy among the working poor immigrant community, and LOP’s children’s program allows these adult students to focus on their studies knowing that their children are safe and being nurtured. The program provides two semesters yearly of ESL and literacy classes at five locations, all of which are accessible by public transportation, as well as two month long citizenship classes which assist students with completion of their citizenship application and prepares them for their citizenship exams.
    (5) CMR’s Housing Program for the Homeless, which includes two homes: the JEFFERSON HOUSE PERSONAL LIVING QUARTERS which offers permanent supportive housing for homeless men who have completed a substance addiction program and who need ongoing supportive services to maintain housing, and the recently opened ROCKLAND HOUSE, offering permanent supportive housing for formerly homeless women. Clients are supported by case management, house meetings, individual counseling, life skills development and continued education to develop and improve residents’ ability to live independently and maintain healthy relationships.

    In addition to the above programs, CMR participates yearly in Montgomery County's Holiday Giving Program, wherein CMR provides food and gifts for approximately 400 needy families over the Thanksgiving and winter holidays.

  • History:
  • Established as Community Ministries of Rockville, CMR is a non-sectarian 501(c)3 non-profit organization which has faithfully served those in need in Montgomery County, Maryland since 1967. As described, CMR provides a wide range of direct human services through its five programs which are constantly growing and adapting to meet changing community needs.

    The Rockville Emergency Assistance Program (REAP) was established in 1981, and has been providing emergency financial assistance to the community for the past 34 years. CMR’s Elderly Ministries Program has provided services to the elderly for the past 31 years, adding case management, provision of assistive devices, home repair and modification, and delivery of free food to its services over the years, most recently working with the County Fire and Rescue Services to inspect and replace smoke and CO detectors in clients’ homes. Elderly Ministries has also initiated discussions with the County and local agencies to explore the “Village” concept of elder care.

    CMR has worked to provide housing for the homeless through various housing initiatives since 1987. It has operated the Jefferson House Personal Living Quarters which provides permanent supportive housing for homeless men since 1993. Our most recent program, the Rockland House, opened in April of 2014 and provides supportive housing for homeless women.
    In response to the needs of the County’s increasing immigrant community, the Latino Outreach Program was established in 1993, and began by providing English as a Second Language classes. CMR’s LOP has grown steadily throughout the past 22 years to provide ESOL, English Literacy and Citizenship classes at five locations throughout Montgomery County, as well as childcare, preschool enrichment and tutoring for the children of the adult LOP students. The LOP changed its name from the Latino Outreach Program to the Language Outreach Program to reflect that students from all nationalities are in need of their services and are welcome.

    Beginning in 2004, CMR provided healthcare through the use of mobile vans traveling to different locations in Rockville. In 2009, CMR opened its subsidiary, the Mansfield Kaseman Health Clinic in downtown Rockville, the first clinic for the uninsured in Rockville. In 2013, CMR was able to expand its provision of services at the Clinic from three days a week to five days, Monday through Friday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

    CMR has had a significant impact in improving the quality of life for the most vulnerable of Montgomery County over the past 47 years. The REAP program has aided 24,520 residents, distributing $1,820,797 in financial assistance. CMR’s Housing Programs over the years have provided 439,136 bednights. Since 1993, CMR’s Language Outreach Program has taught language, literacy, and citizenship to 6,841 adult immigrants and provided infant care, child care, preschool enrichment and tutoring to 3,224 children of those adult immigrant students. The Elderly Ministries Program, established in 1983, has provided assistance to 1,402 elderly residents, allowing them to age in place safely. The Mansfield Kaseman Health Clinic has treated 10,992 residents of Montgomery County, translating to 27,202 patient visits.
    Combined, our programs have improved the lives of over 67,960 individuals in Montgomery County. It is a story that is still being written, as we continue to grow and meet the changing needs of those we serve.
