Your donation, talents, & time give hope.
You can help build a better future and create thriving, vibrant communities by donating to or volunteering with Volunteers of America Chesapeake & Carolinas to transform the lives of the men, women, children, families and veterans we serve across Maryland, DC, Virginia and the Carolinas.
Give Health to All
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.
Give Hope & Homes to Women
Kyra is the victim of domestic violence and lives with clinical depression. After separating from her husband, she became homeless and was referred to one of VOA’s integrated health and housing programs in Baltimore. In 2023, we are launching the Hope Has A Home™ for Women program in D.C. to give homeless women who are too sick to be on the streets a safe place to rest, care, and support moving into homes of their own. You can help create this new safe haven for vulnerable women like Kyra by giving to Hope Has A Home™.
Give to Veterans
After spending 13 years in the Army, Bruce moved to NC and jumped into a 20-year career as a truck driver. Long hours on the road, led to the amputation of his right leg and the end of his career. When Bruce could no longer support himself, he was referred to our Maple Court Veterans Transitional Housing Program in NC where he continues to receive the housing and care injured and homeless heroes deserve. You can support our nation’s heroes 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.
