Community Support Network, Inc. (CSN) is a not for profit employment agency for adults with developmental disabilities. At CSN, our ultimate goal is to help adults with cognitive delays and often other disabilities, to participate in the community. One way we achieve this goal is by helping our clients to work. Our approach for each client and employer is as unique as the clients and employers involved.
