Making the homes of those less fortunate Warmer, Safer, Drier, and Healthier.
Founded in 2009, Chesapeake Housing Mission is a non-profit organization that provides vital home repair to low-income families in the Chesapeake Region of Maryland.
We are a Christian Mission that believes we are called to help one another. Through volunteerism and donations, to date we have successfully helped over 500 families in need in Maryland’s Dorchester, Somerset, Wicomico, and Worcester counties. Most of our projects involve building wheelchair ramps, giving back our clients the freedom and independence to remain in their homes.
The demand for our services has rapidly increased due to the growing aging population and the number in need. Our clients are identified as living below the poverty level and are referred to us by local agencies. Our partnerships with these agencies helps us to locate those with the greatest need and bring donors and volunteers together to help improve the living situations of our clients. Our Christian Mission to help those in need continues to guide our work.
The impact of COVID-19 on Chesapeake Housing Mission and our clients is unprecedented. It has affected all of us but has hit those we serve extremely hard – people living in poverty with disabilities, chronic health conditions, and especially the elderly.
