Remember - flood insurance must be obtained separately from homeowners and renters insurance, and it takes 30 days to kick in. Visit bit.ly/floodriskcalculator to get an idea of how much your flood insurance may cost.

You CAN donate at any time by placing your aluminum cans in the trailer at our shelter at 2100 Military Highway.

Our Story

Chesapeake, Virginia is a vibrant community that enjoys the best of two worlds, one of urban variety, culture, and excitement, and another of rural landscapes and relaxed living. Located 20 minutes from the oceanfront, 15 minutes from downtown Norfolk, and 45 minutes from Colonial Williamsburg and the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Chesapeake is the perfect place in which to live, work, and raise a family.

Home to beautiful parks, lakes, and rivers, Chesapeake has more miles of deepwater canals (part of the Intracoastal Waterway) than any other city in the country! The City of Chesapeake was formed through the merger of the City of South Norfolk and Norfolk County in 1963. It’s a community of communities, with each having its own distinctive history.

Over the last decade, many national and international companies have taken advantage of the City’s ports, atmosphere, and highly qualified labor market by relocating to Chesapeake. Chesapeake’s neighborhoods offer a variety of comfortable housing alternatives, from apartments and town homes, to single-family residences and executive homes. The City is consistently ranked by the FBI as one of the safest U.S. cities (with populations over 150,000), which lends to the safe, community atmosphere that residents enjoy.
