Community Services Foundation (CSF) understands that the communities we work with are more than just bricks and mortar. These communities are about people…those who live and work there.
Through the visionary lenses of Eugene F. Ford, Sr., a multi-dwelling apartment owner and developer, we were one of the first organizations in the country to implement community service programs. We realized that the key to successful communities was to provide social service programs based on the needs of the communities that we serve.
Initially implemented to target youth, the community service programs grew to include teens, adults and seniors. Beginning with one community, CSF has grown to include over twenty apartment communities in Washington, DC and Maryland. Our experience has taught us that residents who are engaged in programs in their communities greatly assist in helping to reduce the operating cost of maintaining these units. Our educational, cultural and recreational programs help instill in residents a sense of pride in their communities. CSF’s ability to organize and execute community service programs helps build and maintain a more civic-minded and responsible community and as a result, we have positively impacted the lives of more than 17,000 residents who live in managed communities.
