How You Can Help

  • During times like these, the needs of our fellow community members grows exponentially and CAPTAIN CHS needs you! Monetary donations allow us to purchase food at drastically reduced, bulk prices. It allows us to continue operating the Runway & Homeless Youth Shelter at capacity and offer services for homeless youth, and it allows us to provide homebound seniors the help they need during this crisis. Click to donate.

  • Our Emergency Food & Hygiene Pantry continues to operate but we are in urgent need of additional donations. Drop-off at our Clifton Park Office (5 Municipal Plaza, Suite 3) anytime Monday-Thursday 8:00am-4:30pm and Friday 8:00am-1:30pm. Please call 518-371-1185 from the parking lot to let us know you've arrived with donations. See all of our program needs under "How to Help" and "Wish List" on the top menu. Or click the link above.
