Giving Back to the Community on Thanksgiving and Every Day

At Coakley Realty, we understand how important the communities in our area are—not only because we help people buy and sell homes in Maryland, Northern Virginia, and Washington, DC, but because we’re residents of those same communities, too. That’s why we do our part in giving back to the community on Thanksgiving and every day.

We’re proud to support two local charities that are making a positive influence in our area: Community Ministries of Rockville and Stepping Stones Shelter. When it comes to giving back to the community, these two organizations put helping others at the top of their lists.

Community Ministries of Rockville

Community Ministries of Rockville (CMR) was founded in 1967 during the merge of a Presbyterian Church USA congregation and a United Church of Christ congregation. The main goal of CMR is to improve the quality of life for the most vulnerable Montgomery County residents by providing basic services, including such things as:

  • Housing
  • Healthcare
  • Homecare
  • Education
  • Emergency assistance

They strive to help people achieve and maintain self-sufficiency by advocating on their behalf. If you want to learn more about giving back to the community and donating to Community Ministries of Rockville, visit their website,, or contact them by phone, 301.637.0730.

Stepping Stones Shelter

The goal of Stepping Stones Shelter is to create hope for the future, strengthen families, and promote self-sufficiency by offering emergency shelter, permanent supportive housing, and post-shelter support to homeless families with children so they can go from a crisis situation to a stable home. Some of the other services they provide include:

  • Case management service to connect homeless families with needed services in the community and help them develop income and housing solutions
  • Employment counselors who work one-on-one to provide employment and career counseling
  • Tutoring for children
  • GED tutoring for adults
  • Post-shelter support for families who have moved on from the shelter but still need help with referrals and in-kind donations in order to remain housed
