Founded in 1996, Collaborative Solutions for Communities (CSC), formerly known as Columbia Heights/ Shaw Family Support Collaborative (CH/SFSC), is a community-based organization. Although CSC has historically focused on services to its namesake communities (Columbia Heights and Shaw neighborhoods), in recent years, we have expanded to meet the identified needs of neighborhoods and residents throughout the District of Columbia. Additionally, CSC provides technical assistance and training to local and national nonprofit community organizations.
