We have had an amazing first 6 months of 2016. We have been able to help 37 families with home repair including wheelchair ramps for those living in poverty. Unfortunately, we still have 32 on our waiting list for help in the lower four counties of Maryland’s Eastern Shore. You can help make a difference in someone’s life by making a donation or getting a group together and volunteering to help.
In 2015, we were able to help 58 families by making their homes safer and more secure. Most of these projects were wheelchair ramps built by 1017 volunteers giving over 7,000 hours in service to their fellow man.Seventeen different volunteer groups provided the volunteers with eight of these groups being new to CHM. The team from Antioch Angels completed 10 with Asbury Service Project and Gilbane Construction completing 5 each and Trinity ASP and area Rotary Clubs with 4 leading the way. With a very generous group of donors we received over $ 60,000 in donations in 2015. Our work in 2015 included Salisbury, Fruitland, Cambridge, Crisfield, Princess Anne and also Wicomico, Somerset, Worcester and Dorchester Counties.
Our partnerships with local agencies to refer client’s helps us locate those in great need and bring donors and volunteers together to help improve their living situation. Our Christian Mission to help those in need continues to guide our work.
