Ways to Help

Help us provide life changing services to victims of abuse and let them know they are loved and cared for when you make a donation to the Crisis Center for South Suburbia (CCSS). Whether you make a small or large monetary donation, donate clothing and care items or volunteer your time, you’ll be making a difference in the lives of the people we serve.

We could not do what we do without the help of over 300 volunteers who work on the crisis hotline, at our Neat Repeats Resale Shop, on fundraising events and at the Crisis Center. In their own way, each person tirelessly gives of their time, talent and compassion to see the mission accomplished. The Crisis Center is a place where we all root for each other; a community where we celebrate the qualities and talents that make each of us unique. Volunteer with us and know that you’ve impacted a survivor of domestic violence.
