Helping People.            Changing Lives.

As your state-designated community action agency, CSC is here to help. We offer a number of services in Linn, Benton, and Lincoln counties. These services focus on essential day-to-day survival, such as food and housing, as well as developing new skills that lead to independence through education, training, and work. Whether you need help keeping the heat on today or want help planning for your career of tomorrow, CSC is here to help.

We believe that every family should have access to a stable home, nutritious food, quality education and training, and a job that pays a living wage. We also realize these things can be hard to get without some help along the way. CSC is your place to start. We want to work with you, as a partner, to achieve your goal of a better life for you and your family.  In all that we do, CSC provides help for today and skills for tomorrow. 

Since 1980, CSC has been part of a state and national network helping people and communities to thrive. CSC is helping people and changing lives.
