Our mission is to provide access to food, utility bill assistance, and educational resources for area residents who have experienced or are experiencing an emergency.
Our vision is to close the gap of unmet emergency needs for area residents through regional collaboration with partners, community members, and social service agencies to:
equip local congregations with resources
compliment human and social services
implement a diverse, united approach to addressing acute needs
In 1988, several congregations worked in concert with the Chesterfield Colonial Heights Department of Social Services and came together to create an alliance to serve those experiencing emergencies who reside in Chesterfield, Colonial Heights, Dinwiddie, Hopewell, Petersburg, and Prince George, Virginia.
At CCHASM, we hold several core values. Here is our diversity statement.
We will serve in an impartial manner with empathy and sincere concern for all.
We respect the inherent differences of all and are committed to providing unbiased services.
We will work together as a team in partnership with various community resources to effectively respond to the needs of our clients.
We will be good stewards of all resources entrusted to the organization by using defined and measurable business standards and practices.
We will invest our time and resources to actively pursue and support CCHASM.
We will be truthful and ethical in all we do and
to all we serve.
