Please note:

CHAI offices are closed to the public until further notice in an effort to keep our community and staff safe but we continue to offer services to our community.


To our dear community members:

CHAI is dedicated to the wellbeing of our clients, volunteers, staff and community.  We have been continuously monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, which has included guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the State of Maryland and local Departments of Health, community healthcare organizations, and The Associated.

Supporting and engaging our community is our top priority, especially those who are the most vulnerable. We want to ensure that we do so in a safe and responsible way during the COVID-19 outbreak and therefore we are making some temporary modifications to the way we provide our services.

Our offices are closed to the public but will continue providing services to the community. Please call CHAI’s general intake line at 410-500-5433 (LIFE) should you need assistance.
