Originally founded in 1996 as the Columbia Heights/Shaw Family Support Collaborative, Collaborative Solutions for Communities (CSC) is a DC-based organization committed to helping families and neighborhoods realize a brighter future through engagement and support. At CSC, our vision is simple - to empower urban neighborhoods to become environments where families and youth flourish.
Over the early history of CSC, our work primarily focused on providing services to neighborhoods of Wards 1 & 2 in Washington, D.C. In recent years we have expanded to provide critical services to residents, families and neighborhoods throughout DC and beyond. We believe that the solution-focused approach we use has the power to impact the lives of people of all locales and ethnicities.
