Work Crews Needed in Response to Tidal Flooding

Maryland VOAD is supporting the Eastern Shore Long Term Recovery Committee’s efforts in Somerset and Dorchester Counties to assist families to reach recovery. Tidal Flooding in October 2021 left over 150 families with damage to their homes. We have recently dedicated our first new home built. Three other homes are nearing completion. Work has begun to build four additional homes. We hope to build a total of 10 new homes. Twelve (12) homes have been repaired with nearly 100 additional homes needing repairs.

Work crews are need throughout this summer and fall to help us complete this work. We have a very nice work camp that provides comfortable housing for our volunteers in Crisfield , Maryland. We are still seeking volunteer housing in Dorchester, County. If you have a work crew that could assist us in construction for a week, a couple of days or a weekend, please call or text our Disaster Response Coordinator, Kim Hopkins at 340.643.7516 or email at
