We pour our hearts and souls into this work!
There are many ways to help support our mission...
Visit CSN: Do you have a hobby or talent you’d like to share with our clients? We would love to have you as a Guest Speaker or Visiting Artist! Learn more about our guest speakers and how to become one. LEARN MORE
Invite Us To Visit You: We also provide community education through our SALSO Presentations! Strong Artistic Ladies Speak Out presentations are a unique educational opportunity. We have put together a 60-min. presentation that takes viewers on a visual journey through the history of disabilities from very personal perspectives. LEARN MORE
Vintage, Mod & More: Our store is located in a strip mall and is a unique blend of client-made goods alongside estate-donated items. We want to showcase our clients’ talents within a context that highlights how well their handiwork can fit into any decor and within any lifestyle.
Some of the items clients have created that are currently in stock include jewelry, greeting cards, photos, paintings, ceramics, scarves, and pillows. Our newest addition is growing our stock of items that are created from recycled materials. The store is an incredible way to facilitate our clients’ connections with this community! LEARN MORE
Our employment program matches clients who want to work and employers that need team members. 96% of our clients who want to work are working in paid jobs. CSN collaborates with and amazing array of employers in the Madison area. We provide training, job placement, and ongoing coaching. LEARN MORE

Host an Art Gallery Event: The art gallery events highlight the clients’ perspectives. We want people to leave the shows having gained new knowledge of:
How our clients are just like everyone else
They are capable of telling their own story
They have talents to share
How the viewers can participate in making this a better community for our clients
Our gallery pieces (which are two dimensional) are ready to be hung in a variety of settings and we are currently seeking hosts for one month at a time. Depending on the host space availability, we can expand or contract how many pieces are hung in any given location. LEARN MORE
