News & Events

Sharon Dubel was excited to move into her new home.  Earlier, she had decided to move into Chesterwye Center's newest fully wheel chair accessible home.  Sharon's color choice for her new room was a beautiful shade of lavender.  Sharon's sister-in-law, Cathy, spent weeks color coordinating her new room with quilts, artwork, new furniture and family photos.  

Some of the features of Sharon's new home include wheelchair height counters, and induction stove top as well as, a ceiling height track system which facilitates mobility around the home.  

The house was built in 2018 through a partnership with Queen Anne's County and the ChesterWye Foundation, to promote accessible living for Queen Anne's County residents.  Sharon has been a member of the Chesterwye Center community for more than two decades.  When asked what she is looking forward to in her new home, Sharon answered,  "Thanks that's easy, being close to my family."

    Celebrating 55 Years of Innovative Disability Care

Thanks to the remarkable generosity of our donors, Chesterwye Center completed renovations on Boyd House, which provides homestyle living for four adults with disabilities. Boyd House has four bedrooms, an open floor plan with a recreation area, a bath designed for wheelchair accessibility, and a second bath designed to assist with mobility. 


Today the Chesterwye Center maintains and supports adults in nine homes in Queen Anne’s County.  Each home is outfitted to the specific needs of disabled adults. The next phase for Boyd House is furnishing, decorating, and landscaping. The bedrooms have already been painted to the color choices of the adults who will live at Boyd House.  


Each adult is provided assistance including transportation to community activities, to a job, or to everyday outings such as a visit to the mall. “Homestyle living” provides a family atmosphere, with the dignity of a private room, close friendships, integration into the community, and the support of full-time professional care.

You can support the Boyd House through a donation towards it's furnishings fund. Contact Cathy Frey at (410) 827-7048.
