"My husband and I knew it would be hard, but we kept looking for a place for our whole family. I called many places and could not get an answer. That's when we found CCS Sacred Heart Shelter. They were so welcoming! My experience with CCS people was so good!"

"I am 71 years old. This is my first time being homeless, but now, I have a key and I have a door and I get to go to my room every night and every day, and I have a safe place to live where it is warm or cool, and I feel very lucky. I'm so grateful to have found these people around me who have blessed me with their kindness. Thank you to everyone who has made this possible. I will be forever grateful."

"If you want help, this is where you can get it. I had gotten to 35% heart function where I was sleeping in a ditch next to the highway. I knew I wouldn't make it through the winter. I'm happy to be here - and happy to be on my way so another vet can move in and get help."
