Community Supported Shelters

The best… actually, the only… way to end homelessness is to provide housing. There are a variety of ways to provide housing, all of which are inadequate for the increasing population of homeless folks. CSS creates conestoga huts in villages, which provides security and housing for those who cannot rent, whether sleeping in cars or on the street.

Eugene Mennonite is exited about the possibility to provide both housing and independence. In 2017 Eugene Mennonite provided three thousand dollars to CSS. Right now, we are in the middle of a project providing secure, wooden storage boxes for 30 of these huts.

If anyone would like to donate supplies or finances to CSS so they can continue to do this essential work. please look at their website at
