Updated: May 9

Chester, MD April 29, 2024 – Haven Ministries has received $5,000 from The Women & Girls Fund of the Mid Shore in support of the "Homes of Hope Case Management & Client Education Program". Haven Ministries will use the gift to provide services to the clients enrolled in the Homes of Hope Housing program located in Stevensville, MD.

“We are greatly appreciative of this gift from the Women & Girls Fund of the Mid Shore.  Their dedication to serving the needs of women and girls in Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s and Talbot Counties, Maryland is helping improve the lives of many underfunded programs on Maryland’s Mid Shore” said Peter Grim, Executive Director of Haven Ministries.  

The (2) Homes of Hope provide a long-term housing assistance program with year round services. The program allows individuals and families to apply for help and is structured as a landlord-tenant relationship. Many of the clients are women and girls. The goal of the Housing Assistance Program is to offer clients the tools needed to successfully move to safe and affordable housing.
