Great job, Robert! It’s good to see you with your new apartment keys. Congratulations!
CCO’s Shelter for Men provides bed space for 65 men each night. During the day men in the shelter program are offered intensive case management services, meals, on-site medical and mental health services, and a variety of services that meet the complex needs of each individual. Our goal is always stable, permanent housing. And it is our privilege to see our shelter guests move from homeless to housed! Join us in our efforts to provide safe, beneficial shelter. Donate Today!
We would like to thank the Pepsico company for their continued support of our programs here at CCO. In addition to sponsoring our monthly Men’s Barbershop Events, Pepsico also conducted a clothing drive which collected suits and business attire for our residents to wear for job interviews and apartment hunting.
Today we received a donation of 900 lbs. of Quaker Foods products from the Pepsico company. Good things are happening at CCO, and it’s the participation of our community partners that helps to make that happen! Thank you!
It’s great to see Arturo in his brand new apartment! Congratulations!
It’s been an exciting week at CCO. Several of our single shelter guests have moved into permanent, stable housing. Five people found employment and two families moved into apartments this week from our family programs. We are grateful for all the success!
Your donations make these successful moves possible. Please donate today!
Christmas is around the corner! We are looking forward to celebrating the holidays with all our shelter guests. With over 100 children and many parents and single adults it takes a lot of effort to make the holidays shine.
Please consider donating today. Your contribution will make a difference in the day to day lives of homeless families and it will make the holidays a little brighter.
This week is National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. How will you resolve to fight poverty in your community? Join CCO or your local non-profit to fight hunger and homelessness. Your efforts count.

Take a moment to read this article about New Life for Old Bags (NLOB), a group of volunteers who knits plastic bags into mats for homeless people living outside. Creating mats for homeless individuals has a positive impact on the environment by keeping plastic out of landfills and waterways. The mats are lightweight and dry easily and are a comfort to people living outside. Thank you, New Life For Old Bags!
