Community Support Advocates (CSA) is a non-profit that provides services to individuals and families impacted by disabilities in Central Iowa. Through our Momentum Programs, CSA is partnering for growth and resiliency through the arts.

CSA believes in the transformative power of art. Art is a tool that can build confidence, inspire hope, and develop resilience.

Often individuals with disabilities see art as inaccessible to them due to a lack of money for art supplies, knowledge or confidence, or the lack of a safe space to create. Momentum provides free art opportunities to underserved populations that include an annual juried art competition and exhibition as well as art workshops offered throughout the year. As Momentum continues to grow, we look forward to offering studio space and mentorship programs.
