Community Support Advocates (CSA) is a non-profit that provides services to individuals and families impacted by disabilities in Central Iowa. Through our Momentum Program, CSA is partnering for growth and resiliency through the arts. We believe in the transformative power of art. Art is a tool that can build confidence, inspire hope, and develop resilience.
Creativity Starts Here!
The Momentum Program is designed to provide free art opportunities to underserved populations impacted by disability, brain injury, or mental health diagnosis. Our services include an annual art competition & exhibition, free workshops, and open studio space.
Freedom of Expression Without Judgement
Momentum offers creative space for those who have not been exposed to the arts, inspire disconnected artists, as well as enhance the skills of more advanced artists. We do this by partnering with local artists who provide instructional workshops and mentor opportunities. Not only does this benefit the population we work with, but it generates a greater understanding of mental health and disability within our community.
