Helping the unhoused rebuild their lives through intentional community.

CSS is a rapidly growing non-profit 501(c)(3) based in Eugene, Oregon. We are leading the way on shelter options for individuals experiencing homelessness. We build sturdy Conestoga Hut shelters that are pleasing to the eye, create caring and collaborative communities, and provide extensive support that empowers clients to stabilize and rebuild their lives.

  • Donate
  • Deliver seasoned firewood to keep our campers warm in the winter
  • Help us connect with local businesses that have building materials to donate
