From The Desk of Our Chief Executive Officer
The Mission of CCSI is to help those in need, and it has done so since it was founded in 1871. Part of of our programming includes a Senior Women’s Shelter which has been present on our campus since 2001. We’ve recently been in disucussions with NYCDHS to upgrade the exisitng facility to accommodate up to 22 Senior Women in need. There have been some in the community who have expressed concern, and for that reason its important to note that our campus is equipped with 24/7 manned security as well as digital security cameras across the campus to ensure the safety of all who visit. The women utilizing the shelter will be fellow Staten Islanders, our neighbors, who need assistance getting back on their feet which is the goal of our program.
