BASIC AND EMERGENCY NEEDS

CSS provides basic and emergency needs to families and individuals with pressing needs: Food, utility and rental assistance, homelessness, and as needed financial assistance for other types of needs.

CSS also acts as a mediator between clients and their creditors, whether those creditors are local landlords, utility companies, credit card companies, etc. When applying for Emergency Services and Basic Needs, we do a whole application process on the client to not only assist with their pressing problems, but other problems that they might be facing in the future. We do extensive budgeting and money management with them, help them apply for public benefits, and even assist in helping them with find a more affordable living situation.

In addition, we run the Gift of Giving Christmas Program, where we provide clothing and toys to approximately 1100 low income families during the Holiday Season.

Every situtation is different, and we have the flexibility to help with a myriad of situations, and mobilize in the case of a major emergency (home fire, displaced familes, etc.). Please don't hesitate to call us for any issue, we can help.
