Brandi had lost all hope before she found the VOA Hope Center. A single mother, victim of domestic violence, cancer survivor and recovering addict, Brandi couldn’t afford the treatment she needed to heal. Her 14-year-old son, Marcus, also needed support with autism. Thanks to support from donors like you, Brandi has remained sober and Marcus loves working with his counselor. By giving to the VOA Hope Center, you can help a man, woman or child in Maryland and D.C. get the care they need free of charge.
Your donation gives hope.
You can help build a better future and create a thriving, vibrant community by making a donation to Volunteers of America Chesapeake & Carolinas and helping the children, families, veterans, and individuals we serve across our affiliate.
Programs that need your support in 2023
Give Hope & Homes to Women
Gregory had been homeless for four years and struggled with addiction before he found Hope Has A Home™. In D.C., this program gives homeless men who are too sick to be on the streets a safe place to rest, the care they need, and help moving into homes of their own. Thanks to giving hearts like yours, Gregory has his own apartment and the support he needs to stay sober. In 2023, we are expanding Hope Has A Home™ to support D.C.’s homeless women. You can help create this new safe haven for vulnerable women by giving to Hope Has A Home™.
Give to Veterans
Will became a police officer to serve his local community after retiring from 11 years of military service. After sustaining a severe back injury in the line of duty, Will could no longer work and was in need of help. In North Carolina, supporters like you make it possible for our Maple Court Veterans Transitional Housing Program to provide the housing and care our injured and homeless heroes need. Today, Will can retire with the dignity he deserves. You can support our nation’s dedicated service men and women by donating to Maple Court.
Help Youth Escape Poverty
Yavin didn’t know what to do after graduating from high school. Growing up with limited resources, school had been a challenge. Now a father at the age of 19, Yavin needed a way to support his baby girl Anaaise. That’s when Yavin found Newport News YouthBuild. Thanks to advocates for youth empowerment like you, Yavin was trained and certified in electrical systems and HVAC. Today, he works for a large contractor with full benefits and a great salary. You can help at-risk youth get the training, certifications and support they need to jump into exciting careers and escape poverty.
