Our mission is to provide vital housing repair services through Christian Mission to low-income families living in the Chesapeake Region as well as transformational life experiences to those we serve, volunteers offering their service, congregations involved with the CHM program, and entire communities.
How CHM Started
Chesapeake Housing Mission was started in 2009 by a dedicated group of individuals who believed that we should always view our blessings as gifts to be passed to those who are not as fortunate.
The Chesapeake Housing Mission organization was formed to provide vital housing repair services through Christian Mission to low-income families living in the Chesapeake Region and has been recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-profit in July 2009. We work with youth and adults from local churches in their preparation for youth missions out of the area and allow them to help families in need in our lower three counties.
We have worked to develop relationships with several key organizations that will enable the Chesapeake Housing Mission to streamline services and eliminate duplication of efforts. Memorandum of Agreements have been developed and signed with MAC, Shore-up, Bay Area Center for Independent Living, Delmarva Community Services, The four County Health Departments and Deer’s Head State Hospital. These relationships create a strong bond that will enable our organizations to serve those in most need.
In 2016, Chesapeake Housing Mission just completed its most successful year since its beginning in 2009. Sixty one projects were completed. We completed projects in Wicomico, Worcester, Dorchester and Somerset Counties. In addition, projects were also completed in Fruitland, Pocomoke City, Salisbury, Princess Anne, Cambridge and Crisfield.
