About CSN

The Community Supports Network was founded to meet the needs of people experiencing developmental disabilities and/or mental health needs. Since its inception, CSN has strived to develop a model that caters to the needs of each person. CSN does not rely exclusively on traditional service models when developing systems and procedures but attempts to provide services designed specifically to meet needs, interests and desires.


CSN currently provides services in Nebraska, Iowa, and Missouri.


We have a foundational belief that supporting one person requires a multitude of considerations and supports. For this reason, CSN has built an infrastructure utilizing a team of professionals that includes caring direct support professionals and case management staff to ensure that each person we support receives the services that best meet their individual needs.
