Community for Creative Non-Violence (CCNV)

CCNV's Mission is to ensure that the rights of the homeless and poor are not infringed upon and that every person has access to life's basic essentials -- food, shelter, clothing and medical care. CCNV is also committed to protecting the rights of the homeless, advocating on behalf of the under-served, and preparing homeless men and woman to re-enter into mainstream society as skilled and productive citizens.
Providing Shelter
The 1,350-Bed Federal City Shelter is the largest and most comprehensive facility of its kind in America.
We also provide clothing to our residents. Donors, including stores, contribute thousands of pounds of clothing and shoes to CCNV's residents each year. Surplus clothing is sold in The Treasure Chest Thrift Store when so designated by donors.
Providing Meals
We have served over 5,000,000 meals to our residents since 1984.
Restaurants, wholesale food distributors, and franchises donate over 150 tons of food to the shelter each year.
