The Chesapeake Housing Mission has demonstrated a committment to building partnerships with local organizations to identify individuals and families in need of housing repair to increase safety and accessibility. The organization has a strong network of volunteers and reaches out to businesses and civic organizations for funds and volunteers. Even though this is a relatively new organization, it is building a solid foundation of success and avoiding duplication of services by working with other nonprofits and service providers.

Deer's Head Hospital Center has made several referrals to Chesapeake Housing Mission and they have been extremely helpful in the building of ramps so our patients can get in and out of their homes when they are discharged. These ramps help the patients be mobile and they help us in being able to discharge the patients safely and we know they with have access whenever needed. For many individual this makes the difference in being in a nursing home or in their own home.
Thank you Chesapeake Housing Mission for making a difference.

I have referred low income elderly individuals with mobility problems to Chesapeake Housing Mission. They have fostered the resources needed to build ramps for these individuals, enabling these older persons to remain in their homes because they can now get in and out using the ramps.
