Since 1980, Chatham Trades has been providing vocational and developmental services for Chatham adults with developmental disabilities. These individuals develop their social skills and works habits, and if they choose, continue their academic training. Participants accomplish all of these things while performing meaningful work and earning wages for the work that they perform.  As participants increase their work skills, Chatham Trades helps work ready individuals find jobs.


West Chatham Food Pantry opened in 2007 with the mission of obtaining and distributing free food to the hungry of Chatham County, primarily in the western portion of the county.  They collaborate with similar food programs of other community-based organizations such as the Interfaith Food Shuttle and Central and Eastern NC Food Bank.  The Pantry also provides a backpack program for elementary students who qualify and operates solely by volunteers.


The Salvation Army Chatham County Crisis Assistance Program is a social service agency that assists individuals and families in various capacities to prevent homelessness and address the client's basic needs that lead to self-sufficiency such as: food, clothing, hotel vouchers, rental, and utility assistance.  The Salvation Army understands the importance of addressing individual transformations that occur for people to move them from poverty to economic independence.
