Hidden Valley House and Project Safe House Auxiliaries

Members of our two Auxiliaries are CCS volunteers who dedicate their time to make the shelters as comfortable and welcoming as possible.

COVID-19 Update

Due to the concerns with COVID-19, national and local public health guidance indicate the need for communities to make temporary adjustments. In an effort to do our part in reducing risk for our clients, staff and volunteers, and the community, Center for Community Solutions requires all its staff and volunteers to wear masks and follow the distancing guidelines by the CDC. Further safety requirements will be discussed with the volunteer depending on their role.

If you have any questions about volunteering, please email Dalia Alzendi, Volunteer Program Manager, at dalzendi@ccssd.org.
