Community Services Project, Inc. (CSP) meets the 20 Standards for Charity Accountability.
Back To Top



Community Services Project, Inc. provides job opportunities for persons with disabilities across Kentucky, Indiana and Northern Tennessee. Its mission is accomplished through contractual arrangements with the Kentucky Office for Vocational Rehabilitation as a Community Rehab Partner and as an Employment Network for individuals who assign their Ticket to Work with them. The agency's staff works with each of these individuals to provide community based adjustment programs as well as job placement services for a competitive employment outcome. In addition, the agency contracts with state and local governments to provide janitorial service job opportunities for persons with disabilities at its contract site locations. These janitorial service jobs are primarily in state road side rest areas. Other job site locations include office complexes, state health care facilities, and other private office buildings/business enterprises. CSP’s internal agency job sites offer competitive wages, flexible schedules, and employee benefits-life, dental, vision insurances, and paid time off. Its staff also works with rehab program providers to ensure employees have the needed reasonable accommodations and the job training necessary to perform their work duties. CSP staff also provides job opportunities at its work sights for disadvantaged workers participating in the Kentucky Training Assistance Program. CSP also operates its own private branded online loyalty superstore, which it offers as a service to other nonprofits and small businesses to help raise money for their organizations.
