Survivors living in rural communities face unique challenges like limited housing, a lack of public transportation, isolation, and a lack of privacy. MSCFV's comprehensive, holistic Chesapeake Crisis to Self-Sufficiency Model seeks to address these barriers through service continuums. As a result, most clients stay with our agency for longer than typical at other, crisis-focused agencies. Our clients transitioning from crisis to self-sufficiency spend 4 months working with their case manager, with MSCFV investing up to $7,413 in services, legal representation, food, and housing assistance.
