about Chesterwye Center, Inc.

The Chesterwye Center is located at 110 Chesterwye Lane, Grasonville, Maryland in Queen Anne's County. Chesterwye was founded in 1967 by a group of concerned citizens interested in aiding and providing services to children with Intellectual Disabilities. Later, as the children grew older and as services were needed in the county, the focus of support was directed towards adults with Intellectual Disabilities.

Currently, Chesterwye provides a variety of services for over 70 adults with Intellectual Disabilities and employs more than 100 staff.
