Providing a Community to Cultivate and Grow happiness

At Community Systems, Inc., we help persons with disabilities find happiness in their own homes, in their personal relationships, and as contributing members of their community.


Our Services We believe in tailor-made supports as unique as each person's specific needs

When you define success as a person experiencing happiness in their home, relationships and community, it’s easy to see why CSI provides a variety of supports. We’re focused on long-term solutions to champion happiness.

Case Management Supports

Some of the adults supported by CSI with case management services are persons with mild intellectual disabilities (and potentially accompanying physical disabilities) who are capable of living alone, but may need periodic assistance.

Day Activity Supports

There may be persons for whom employment is too great a physical, behavioral or mental challenge. If so, there are alternative day activities which include recreational, volunteer, and community experiences.

Supported Independent Living

All four CSIs support people who live in their own homes or apartments and receive varying amounts of support. Persons supported in this manner include persons with mild to moderate intellectual disabilities and persons with acquired brain injury.

Shared Living

Shared living describes a home in which a person with disabilities lives with a non-disabled person (or family) who has accepted contractual responsibility for the well-being of the person and opens their home and life to help the person find happiness.

Small Group Living

Small group homes are the most traditional of living environments, and CSI is making a concerted effort to replace them with supported independent living options whether or not persons need 24-hour supports.

Supported Employment

CSI-Connecticut provides supported employment to persons who may work alone competitively or who may work in small enclaves with their colleagues. CSI-Connecticut identifies and accesses employment opportunities for persons with disabilities.
