The JSS “niche” in providing for our community’s un- and underhoused is to travel the gathering places and encampments of the homeless and distribute the necessities of existence. Toilet paper, socks, tents for shelter, seasonal clothing, sanitary supplies, tooth brushes and tooth paste, etc… We work with other providers in transporting, building, and supervising shelters, and any place we might be helpful to the un-housed.
