The Impact program is all about fostering positive change and giving our clients resources vital to their success. It provides permanent community-based housing for 12 chronically homeless men, women, or families. Impact is funded by HUD and specifically helps those that are in recovery, need substance abuse treatment, need mental health assistance, and/or are physically disabled.

The Impact team evaluates each member of the program to help give them support and provide them with the tools they need to be as independent as possible.

Policy: It is the policy of Community Support Programs, Inc.(CSP) to ensure equal access for all individuals including transgender individuals and other individuals who do not identify with the sex they were assigned at birth with access to programs, benefits, services and accommodations in accordance with their gender identity. CSP also ensures individuals are protected from being subjected to intrusive questioning or being asked to provide documentation regarding their gender identity.

“I thank God for the program after I got out of treatment. It was a blessing to be chosen. They saw something in me that I never saw. Previous staff members had faith in me and knew I was going to make it. I just loved everyone at CSP that I worked with. I have so much faith in the program. It works if you let it. I accomplished getting a job, a truck, quit smoking and stayed sober. I was able to leave the program able to pay my bills and remain successful. I hope the next person is able to get the same benefits. I know CSP has had my back and continues to. I am grateful for everything. I owe it all to God. All the help and opportunity helped me get on my feet”. - M. Turner

“IMPACT was a wonderful program. I moved from New Orleans after being on drugs for 20 years. After treatment, I got connected with Community Support Programs and they helped me. I have remained sober throughout my time in the program and continue to be sober. The program works if you work it. It’s a beautiful program, and I completed it. It gave me stability to stand up on my own feet. It helped me to be able to function on my own. I now am able to pay my bills on my own, and pay them on time. Thanks to the completion of the program, I am living on my own now. I truly do not know where I would be without the program. It really gave me a leg to stand on and a better outlook on life”. - V. Roques
