Programs and Services

  • CSS aids the poor and homeless who come to our agency for basic human services in times of critical need. We begin by providing immediate services in our Emergency Shelter and then assist individuals and families with various levels of support services to maintain a functional lifestyle and housing stability. We operate 96 units of site-based subsidized housing for single adults with little or no income. We also own and operate several single-family homes in which we place former emergency shelter residents. We serve over 500 adults and families annually and have been doing this work for over forty years.
