CCEH offers resources that help people struggling with homelessness meet their basic needs, and we provide permanent housing opportunities to some of our most vulnerable citizens. We work with community partners and advocate for solutions that actually end homelessness.
CCEH Operations During COVID-19
We have moved our Resource Center outside under a large event tent and are using the Winter Shelter office for one-on-one meetings. It is open 9-12PM Monday through Friday. Guests can get out of the elements, use the restroom, pick up their mail, use the showers and laundry, charge their phones, get COVID-19 guidance and updates, use our phone, and receive clinical case management/mental health services.
We are also able to distribute surgical and handmade masks (see photo below – wonderful donations!), refills on hand sanitizer, some clothing items, socks, blankets and to-go beverages and snacks (as available).
As we all navigate this challenging time, our goal is to provide as many of our services as we can while keeping guests and staff safe and slowing the spread of COVID-19 in the community. We will continue to work with state and local organizations to adapt our services with that very goal in mind.
SAFE SPACES II: THE NEXT STEP
JOIN US AS WE TAKE THE NEXT STEP IN ENDING HOMELESSNESS IN GREATER CONCORD
CCEH is committed to ending homelessness in Concord because we believe that every person has value, and ending homelessness is absolutely possible. Our first Safe Spaces campaign in 2017, a huge success, provided sufficient funds to build the life-saving Emergency Winter Shelter and support all of our programs for three years.
Now we’re asking you to take The Next Step toward ending homelessness in Greater Concord.
Donations to Safe Spaces II: The Next Step is helping us to purchase a downtown building and renovate it into four apartments – Green Street Apartments – that will provide a safe and supported home to people who have lived in shelters, cars and the woods. We expect these apartments to be ready for occupancy in October 2020! Donations will also keep our essential programs operating for another three years, as well as provide seed money for future projects.
