The Commitment

The Chesapeake Health Education Program, Inc. has a longstanding mission to serve and strengthen communities by giving hope and help to American Veterans in need, by providing transitional housing and support services to homeless Veterans.

The rationale is simple: veterans should not experience the indignity of not having a place to reside and so we provide them with safe and comfrotable living environments. 

CHEP provides 123 beds to homeless veterans in five (5) locations along the east coast. The housing sites cluster within the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern states and are categorized into Grant and Per Diem Beds (supported by the Department of VA) and Contract beds (operated by our non-profit corporation). The sites include the following:


City and State Program Name Beds Beds
Mid Atlantic Sites Grant Per Diem Contract
Perry Point, Maryland Veterans Independent project 29  
Washington, DC DC Vets 14  
Southeastern Sites    
Charleston, South Carolina Veterans Villas 20  
North Charleston, South Carolina Charleston VETS 20 30
North Charelston, South Carolina Freedom House   10
Total 83 40

Our work targets the reality that on any given day, as many as 250,000 veterans (male and female) are living on our Nations’ streets or in shelters. Our efforts have assisted hundreds of veterans over the years.
