The idea behind Community Supported Shelters is that with everybody giving a little we create a lot (of huts). It’s like the Stone Soup Story of Shelters for the weary! Whether you can give Time, Materials, or Money every little bit helps to make the gift of shelter available to someone in need.

Here’s some ways that can you can contribute to this community-wide project:


-Donate left over building materials.


-Help us connect with businesses that have leftover building materials.


-Attend a Volunteer Orientation and sign up to participate during a build time.


-Give small or large amounts of money.

Community Supported Shelters is in the process of applying for its tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status from the Internal Revenue Service. We expect tax-exempt status to be granted retroactively and that all donations made from the organization’s incorporation date of March 11, 2013, will be deductible.


-Spread the word to others about the project and give them the website address (www.conestogahuts.com).


No matter who you are, you have something to share. The growing houseless population can be a challenge which brings us all together to make a difference and create a highly efficient, solution-based program supported by the whole community.
