Founded in 2009 and operating out of Salisbury, Maryland, Chesapeake Housing Mission is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable Christian Mission that provides critical home repair and builds wheelchair ramps all at no cost, for low-income families in Maryland’s Dorchester, Somerset, Wicomico and Worcester counties. We believe that we are called to help one another and have successfully helped hundreds of families through donations and volunteerism. CHM partners with volunteer teams from local organizations, businesses, and churches giving them the opportunity to give back.

Are you aware that CHM is the only agency in the lower four counties of Maryland that is providing critical home repair and building wheelchair ramps for those without the means to afford it them themselves?
Are you aware that CHM only services clients referred to us by local agencies skilled in assessing physical and financial needs? …agencies like Bay Area CIL, PRMC, SCCOA, MAC, WorCOA, Delmarva Community Services and County Health Departments.
Are you aware that on average over 50% of those we’ve served are veterans or families of veterans?
Are you aware that CHM is servicing 3 out of 5 of the top most poverty stricken counties in Maryland (Dorchester, Somerset, and Wicomico)?
Would you agree that it makes good business sense to keep people in their homes as long as possible by making needed repairs versus placing them in state run institutions? We do!
In 2019, we successfully completed 103 projects involving 1,396 volunteers – a record breaking year for us!
