What is a Code Blue shelter and where is it? 
Coalition to Shelter and Support the Homeless (CSSH) is an alliance of individuals and organizations assisting unsheltered adults in Central Bucks County. 
  • It is a faith-based group of volunteers which provide emergency shelter in local churches on nights when the temperature drops below 26degrees.
  • The CSSH is a non-profit organization which not only shelters the homeless during cold spells from Dec through Mar but also tries to connect people with organizations to improve their circumstances and gain self-sufficiency (such as help with housing or getting credentials)
  • They Primarily serve the Central Bucks County Region. Local churches in that area host the shelters. Clients are provided transportation; a warm place to sleep; a hot meal; breakfast and food for lunch.
  • It takes a minimum of 14 people to staff a shelter (working in shifts). IF they do not have 14 volunteers for a given night, the shelter will not open.
