Quick Escape


CCSS is the proud recipient of the 2001 President’s Community Service Award and has been nationally recognized by the President of the United States for outstanding volunteer service.

The Crisis Center could not operate as it does today without the dedication of our over 300 volunteers who work on the crisis hotline, at our Neat Repeats Resale Shop, or in one of numerous other volunteer opportunities.
