CSH held an institute to take teams of people that had a heart for the homeless and help them with the mechanics on how to make that happen and how to obtain the resources to accomplish the goal. They were great to work with and their dedication to meet the needs of the homeless was amazing. It was nice to see that the people from CSH dont just talk the talk, but walk the walk as well. My hats off to them and best wishes to theit efforts in the future. Greg Funk- CEO of Construction Management Services
