Chalice Christian Church (DOC) leaders claim: "We understand that God has called us offer hospitality to others in our community, including Ecumenical Churches and non-profit organizations who are trying to make the world a better place. When we connect with these groups and they use our space, we become "Ministry Partners" by our own definition." We are truly blessed by the folks listed below. PLEASE support them the best way you can during the COVID 19 pandemic. Until we see you again, God bless you!  


Peace by Piece is a program of Edmarc in partnership with Chalice Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) which offers a supportive and caring environment for children and teens who have experienced the death of a loved one so they can process their grief and adjust to a different world.

Seton Youth Shelters shall provide a safe haven, counseling and outreach services, 24 hours per day without charge, to assist youth in crisis through-out Hampton Roads, with the goal of reuniting families. These teenagers in crisis end up at Seton Youth Shelters because of the hope offered to them and their parents. We offer hope of reconciliation, understanding, and love. In over 90% of cases, reconciliation is successful.

The caring staff offers hope and confidence to teens and parents while creative implementation of pro-grams provides added capability. Seton is dedicated to making a difference one teen at a time.

The major factor that cause the degradation of our waterways is also now our biggest strength and hope for the future: PEOPLE. In 2002, a committed group of local citizens came together to foster partnerships that would apply public and private resources to the challenge of reducing pollution in the Lynnhaven. That core group formed the nucleus of what has grown into an award winning river restoration project with over 8,000 members called Lynnhaven River NOW. “Now” because the work of restoring and protecting the beautiful Lynnhaven River is something that we can do NOW for ourselves and for our children and grandchildren. Over the years, our programs have grown to encompass the entire city with Pearl Homes, Pearl Businesses, Pearl Faith Communities and Pearl Schools in every watershed in Virginia.

CIRCLE A HOME FOR HORSES. Established in 2014, Circle A Home for Horses is a non-profit organization dedicated  to improving the lives of at-risk children and rescued equines through  paired bonding, learning, and fellowship. We are a fully functioning  equine rescue, saving horses from situations of slaughter/abuse/inhumane  treatment. After transporting these horses to our rescue located in Virginia Beach, VA, our incredible team of dedicated volunteers and staff begin the healing of body, mind, and soul of these deserving animals. They work  tirelessly alongside our equine veterinarians, farrier and equine  dentist to rehabilitate these horses to a healthy state. Some of our horses find forever-homes with adoptive families and others go to work and pay-it-forward for our community’s youth.


Virginia Supportive Housing's mission is to end homelessness by providing permanent housing and supportive services. Founded in 1988, VSH was the first non-profit organization in VA to develop and provide permanent supportive housing for homeless single adults. Since then, VSH continues its tradition of making Homelessness History. As Virginia’s largest supportive housing organization, we developed and we manage more than 650 housing units in 15 communities, and we serve hundreds of additional clients in permanent housing with private landlords. The individuals and families we serve represent the lowest income levels in the Commonwealth–generally 30 percent or less than an area’s median income. To fulfill our mission we depend on a wide variety of funding sources including individuals, corporations, foundations, governments and faith-based communities.

Through a unique combination of techniques involving proven life coaching methods, eye positioning, acupressure, and light massage, Alecia Masood, CMT can show clients how to awaken their body/mind and learn how to listen and discover what brings true meaning and joy to life. Each session is spec-ifically designed for that person, on that particular day. No two sessions are alike. My clients tell me they receive the most benefit when they schedule regular appointments (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly). They have discovered that by developing their ability to listen to their body/mind, they feel more com-fortable in their body, and as a result, experience improved work performance and enjoyment of their everyday lives. Best of all, they are creating a life with less pain and the ability to more efficiently handle routine stress, resulting in the realization that they can feel connected with life and those they love and live in flow with purpose.
