CHEVY CHASE COMMUNITY CENTER WILL BE OPEN TO THOSE IN NEED
CCCC is offering its building as a warming center for persons who are “unsheltered” due to a personal state of homelessness and who, for one reason or another, do not utilize existing homeless shelters. Additionally our doors will be open to serve stranded motorists, homeowners and tenants during cold-weather power outages, as well as pets in need.
CCCC will provide short term emergency shelter along with a hot meal when temperatures or a combination of precipitation, wind chill, wind and temperature become dangerously inclement. Our purpose is the prevention of death and injury related to exposure to the elements especially hypothermia, the risk for which is aggravated by factors such as age, alcohol consumption, and homelessness.
Hours of operation are 8:30 am- 2 pm. Advance notice is needed for after-hours and weekend shelter.
The Chevy Chase Community Center is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization which was founded by the Indiana County White Township Supervisors, the Department of Education and contributions from other well-wishers in the Indiana area. The Center’s mission and purpose are to develop and implement human services – both program and cultural, educational and social activities for all residents of Indiana County without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or handicap condition. Additionally, we provide a forum for community action and stimulate community improvement and development. We rely solely on donations, grants, fundraising efforts, and contributions.
