Cupertino Community Services (CCS) is a nonprofit, charitable, community-based agency serving the needs of low-income West Valley residents. CCS prevents hunger by distributing more than 100,000 pounds of food each year to hundreds of our less fortunate neighbors. To prevent the eviction of families from their homes and the shut-off of utilities, CCS provides rental assistance and help with PG&E bills. As a Salvation Army Service Center, CCS provides vouchers for gasoline, prescription drugs and shoes. The CCS Holiday program coordinates the distribution of Thanksgiving, Spring, and Summer food baskets, and organizes an "Adopt-A-family" Program in December.
CCS also offers a continuum of care in housing services. The CCS Rotating Shelter Program is a collaboration with local religious congregations and volunteers that provide food and shelter to employable homeless men. CCS also helps men and women with children to temporarily rent low-income housing in the CCS Transitional Housing program. Through the CCS Affordable Housing Program, qualified families and individuals in the Cupertino community may obtain homes at below market rates.
But CCS cannot provide emergency assistance to the needy each year without community support. Generous donations of time, services and money are needed so that CCS can help our less fortunate neighbors. CCS is located in the Quinlan Community Center at 10185 N. Stelling Road, Cupertino.
