The Community Service Association (CSA) was established in 1954. by a group of concerned citizens. It is  believed to be the first organization of its kind in the country. The primary purpose is to offer financial assistance to New Providence residents in their time of need.

The CSA case worker works with prospective “clients”. Each client is assigned a number by the case worker, thus assuring complete anonymity before the clients case is presented to the volunteer board. Each case is acted upon promptly.

Funding for the CSA’s efforts comes from individual and company donations, as well as fundraisers such as the annual pasta dinner/basket raffle.

The CSA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and is chartered in the State of New Jersey.
