Chimes District of Columbia

Who we are

Chimes District of Columbia, DC is one of the nation’s largest employers of people with disabilities. We manage federal, state, and local commercial contracts to provide custodial, janitorial, and other support services for our customers. As a member of Chimes Family of Services, our desire is to ensure that all people with intellectual and behavioral challenges can achieve their fullest potential.

We are accredited by SourceAmerica (formerly NISH) as an AbilityOne service provider, allowing us to take advantage of federal legislation offering employment preference at selected sites for people with disabilities. Sites include the Pentagon, Library of Congress, the Department of Commerce, the Department of the Interior, and many others.

Chimes DC also provides services to Maryland state agencies, including Baltimore-Washington Thurgood Marshall Airport. While many of our contracts provide janitorial/custodial services, we also administer Total Facility Management and Base Operations Support contracts under AbilityOne. We employ people with disabilities at sites ranging as far north as the Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and as far south as Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

Chimes DC is a recipient of the White House “Closing the Circle” Award for leadership in Federal environmental stewardship and green cleaning.
