2022 Holiday Needs

There are many ways you can help individuals supported by Community Support Services to continue to live fulfilling, satisfying lives marked by greater independence, enrichment, inclusion, and productivity. We appreciate and thank you for your continued compassion and commitment to assisting those with developmental disabilities. It is through your life-changing support that CSS can continue the community-based services and support that has enhanced the lives of so many Montgomery County citizens.
