What our Community Is saying...

Friendly and helpful

“I like coming here because they are so friendly and helpful. The people that volunteer deserve a thank you as well for all the good work they do.”

No other place

“Next to my AA meeting, there is no other place I need to be.”

Never have to show “proof”

“After ten years as Administrator here at CCSC many things have changed: guests, volunteers, amounts of food and donations, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the CCSC philosophy of serving guests without means testing. You never have to prove that you need help.”

Welcoming all guests with open arms

“[As a volunteer] we’re glad we can do a little something to help out the organization that helped us & welcomed us with open arms! You guys are doing amazing work. Giving the community a place to go, no matter what their circumstances are. It’s incredible.”

Thank You to Our Community Partners
