Providing HOPE Through Times of Crisis
Our world has changed drastically over the past month and we've been working hard to provide safe shelter to individuals and families in need. Our top priority has always been the safety of our staff, clients and volunteers and we've taken significant steps to ensure their safety throughout the COVID-19 outbreak.
Our Neat Repeats stores have been closed through at least April 7th, all volunteer shifts have been cancelled, the majority of our employees have been working from home, and we have transitioned to a limited, on-site schedule for essential staff. We've had our facilities professionally deep-cleaned and we are highlighting the importance of social distancing and adhering to CDC hygiene guidelines.
We have successfully relocated clients who were living at our shelter and this past week was a whirlwind of collecting, sorting and distributing donations to families who were moving out of our emergency shelter to transitional and temporary housing.
Thanks to your generous support, our immediate needs have been met and all of our clients have been safely moved.

We have received a number of inquiries from people who would like to donate, however, at this time, we cannot accept additional physical donations. Our needs are frequently changing and we will communicate future needs via e-mail and through our social media outlets.
Monetary donations are always welcome and funds can be donated online at:
or checks can be mailed to: CCSS. P.O. Box 39, Tinley Park, IL 60477.
Thanks again for your continued support.
