About Us

Community Support Programs, Inc. began its work in 1990 with homeless men and women in Northwest Louisiana diagnosed with severe and persistent mental illnesses. In 1996, we broadened our scope to include abused and neglected children and their families. Today, CSP serves over 975 families each year in the parishes surrounding Shreveport-Bossier.

Open Hearts, Open Minds

All of our programs aim to enable individuals and families to function as independently as possible – providing a resource point from which our clients can address their own needs. Our dual goals of independence and individuality mean that we design our programs to fit the individual – not make the individual fit our programs.

Our management team:

  • Veronica Stinson Glover, LMSW Chief Executive Officer
  • Ryan Dickinson, LMSW Chief Operating Officer
  • Jamie Jones, BS Chief Financial Officer
  • Diana Davis, Division Director of Community Services
  • Rebecca Minyard, Division Director of Client Services
  • Mollie Sellers, Division Director of Housing

CSP is administered by a voluntary Board of Directors that, in addition to business leaders from Northwest Louisiana, includes representatives of clients and communities served by CSP. The Directors’ diverse backgrounds allow CSP to provide individualized, client-directed services.
