Chevy Chase At Home is incorporated in the State of Maryland and is constituted as a non-profit charitable organization providing services to enable our older residents to live independently in their own homes.

Membership Committee

Are you interested in becoming more involved in Chevy Chase At Home?
Join the Membership Committee, which recruits and welcomes new members. Help us reach out to neighbors who may be unaware of our existence, or the many ways that they can benefit from participation.

We meet every month or two in one of our homes, with cookies (the kind you eat, not the ones that invade your privacy). In between meetings, we give CC@H a visible presence at our social and cultural events and in our communities. Being on a committee is a terrific way  to get to know other members, develop a deeper understanding of all that CC@H offers and have a say in how we develop.
