Code Blue Project provides overnight shelter when the temperature is below 26 degrees or there is a prediction of excessive precipitation. The Code Blue Project season runs from December 1 through March 31.
The Code Blue Project and the work of CSSH is considered an essential service. This mission, delivered by our volunteers, must continue through the pandemic. CSSH is constantly monitoring COVID-19 guidance from the CDC and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and is working closely with the Bucks County Health Department to ensure safety precautions are in place - for our overnight guests and our volunteers.
CSSH's Volunteer Team members sign up for a specific job and date through the Volunteer Hub website. When a "Code Blue" is called, the Volunteer Team is notified by email. Volunteers arrive at the Code Blue Host Site at the scheduled time for their position. Each Code Blue Host Site has a Site Coordinator.
Some examples of volunteer jobs include: van driving and attendance, set up and preparation, welcome and intake, meal service, overnight staff, and cleaning support. All volunteers are required to complete training and a background check before volunteering. Drivers require additional training.
