Experience

Disaster Response Shelter Services

In the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, FEMA required a rapid response for 24/7 medical coverage at shelters housing displaced individuals, families, and children. CHSi delivered medical operations at temporary shelters for those in crisis, within 10 days.

Immigrant Shelter Services

CHSi was awarded a contract by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for rapid ramp-up of a large temporary shelter. Over a 6 week-period, CHSi recruited, vetted, hired, and on-boarded a professional team from the local community to provide medical care and daily living services for a 24/7 operation.

We are extremely proud of the work we do every day to help make these children’s lives better, by providing a safe place, compassionate care, and opportunities for a better future
