Community Support Service is a CARF Accredited mental health agency committed to providing quality Family-Style Residential Services (AFL Homes & Therapeutic Foster Care). We strongly believe that individuals who are currently institutionalized or placed in group-home settings can better benefit from a private home placement (where services are also provided 24/7). Community Support Service is founded on the belief that a person can achieve desired goals with the assistance of support systems. We believe that the most compounding & influencing factors that contribute to one's ability to establish, implement, and accomplish desired goals are rooted in the make-up of the home environment.
Community Support Service (or CSS) was founded by Regina Ferguson in March of 1999. Mrs. Ferguson's experience at that time ranged from working in group home facilities to overseeing the residential program at the Guilford Center (formerly known as the Kendall Center). Throughout her years in the Human Services field, Regina saw the need and potential benefits for individuals to reside in family-style homes in the community as opposed to group homes or institutional settings. When residential services were divested by the state in 1998, she cashed in her 401K and took a leap of faith to start her own business, Community Support Service, LLC.
