During a time of need, Community Shelter Services is here to help and restore hope to families and individuals in Erie County…

Because we’re here…

Matthew is tucked in a warm bed at night instead of sleeping in the back seat of his mothers car.

Because our doors are always open…

Jen and her children no longer live on the street after losing their home to foreclosure.

Because we see things a little differently…

Hundreds of Erie’s family that’s have been helped here are back on their feet.

This year alone, Community Shelter Services will assist more than two-thousand families and individuals who wouldn’t be able to make it on their own, but we can’t do it without your help. Become an advocate for helping families get back on their feet. Be a part of the solution and give hope to a child, a mother, or father.

Your help will enable us to fullfill our mission of ensuring a community response that transforms lives of families and individuals by providing meals, shelter, and services that support a stabilized lifestyle.

Our need is ongoing, any contribution is greatly appreciated. Please consider helping Community Shelter Services support the families in our county who need us the most. Your contribution, whether it be financial, a donation of gently used household items, or clothing is always appreciated.

We want to thank you in advance for everything you are able to do. Your contributions is truly a life saver.
