Since 2013, CSS has successfully established three tent communities, Safe Spots, for people seeking a safe and secure spot to rebuild their lives, which includes a collaborative social program to help reconnect people with services and the local community. In 2017 and 2018 over 65% of Safe Spot participants moved on to an improved living situation. Our Conestoga Hut building program continues to bring hope to the local community as a quick, cost-effective way to provide more durable shelter to people struggling to survive. We have built over 80 Conestoga Huts. Our programs are 80% funded by private donations.
