Creating Circles of Support for People with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities and Their Families

Community Support Services is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children and adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities and their families. CSS fosters independence by helping those we serve recognize their own abilities and envision a brighter future. Then, we help them achieve it. Whether we’re providing in-home assistance to families in need or helping young adults find and transition into jobs, our services help keep our communities strong and our families empowered.

Our site is designed to be fun, informative and useful--another resource in our circle of support. Please click around and enjoy your stay.

  • Want More Money In The Bank?


     By the end of this five-week course, participants will understand how to manage money by preparing a personal spending plan and identifying ways to decrease spending and increase income.

  • Camping With CSS


    For over 15 years CSS has accompanied participants to Menno Haven Camp and Retreat Center for a weekend of adventures and new experiences. It is an event that participants, who may not otherwise have an opportunity to take a vacation, look forward to all year. For three days they get to experience the great outdoors, including fishing, boating, hiking and swimming.

  • CSS Partner Reception


    The CSS Partner Reception at the Brookfield Zoo brought many supporters together from various walks of life to celebrate the accomplishments of CSS. Individuals, companies and members of local mental health boards all help to supplement state funding for our mission.
