Volunteers of America Chesapeake & Carolinas is a faith-based, nonprofit organization whose mission is to inspire self-reliance, dignity and hope through health and human services. Founded in 1896 in Baltimore, MD, by social reformers Ballington and Maud Booth, we were one of the first of over 30 affiliates of Volunteers of America - one of the nation’s largest and most comprehensive human services organizations. Our founders envisioned a movement dedicated to reaching and uplifting the American people. On behalf of the organization, the Booths pledged to go wherever needed, and do whatever comes to hand. That declaration continues to guide Volunteers of America's outreach efforts today. Through a dedicated and committed team of management, more than 800 employees and thousands of volunteers, we provide critical care, support services and hope to thousands of people each year throughout Virginia, Maryland, the District of Columbia and the Carolinas. As a church without walls, we answer the Call to Care for America’s most vulnerable individuals through our more than 49 programs focused on addressing seven key areas: homeless services, supportive housing, behavioral health, intellectual/developmental disability services, substance use recovery, veteran services and community re-entry. We support approximately 11,400 individuals and families in need each year.
