Our Mission

The Chesapeake Multicultural Resource Center (ChesMRC) empowers people from different cultures to become successful and engaged members of our community.

Background & History

Originally launched as a project of the Mid-Shore Community Foundation in September of 2012, ChesMRC now functions as an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit community-based organization.

The Center is organized and led by a Board of Directors comprised of local citizens who support the mission and objectives of ChesMRC.

In addition to private donations, ChesMRC also receives funding from state and local grants to run and administer community programs.

Our Objectives

  • Be the trusted source of information and referrals for the immigrant community.
  • Be a central source of information to service providers about the immigrant community.
  • Through an exchange of information expand the capacity of churches and other community organizations interested in serving the immigrant community.
  • Develop and disseminate information about the current and potential impact of immigrants on the community.
