SCCHS is dedicated to providing safe and secure temporary housing to the homeless while facilitating housing independence.

Donations no matter how large or small are the backbone of our agency. Through the continual support from social groups, churches, businesses and individuals, we are able to provide the much needed services.

Financial support and donated items allows us to continue to help the residents of Sussex County achieve independence and self-sufficiency while in our programs.
