Chesapeake Bay Tidal Flooding

Our first new home–built by volunteers and dedicated November 2022

Work Crews needed for Maryland VOAD’s response to the October 29, 2021 Chesapeake Bay Tidal Flooding

Maryland VOAD is currently supporting the Eastern Shore Long Term Recovery Committee in their efforts to assist residents in Somerset and Dorchester Counties to recovery from the October 2021 Tidal Flooding.  We are assisting residents to make home repairs and currently have four (4) new homes under construction. The new home shown above was dedicated November 2022. The family moved into their new residence in time for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Our repair and new home build program will continue through this fall. We need volunteer work crews with construction skills. The construction skills needed run from framing, roofing and hanging drywall to building ramps, sanding drywall, and painting. 

Volunteer housing is available in Crisfield at the “Old Radar Station” that was used to house volunteers during our response to Superstorm Sandy.  It isn’t the Ritz–but it’s pretty nice as work camps go!
