Oklahoma’s Expert Leaders & Planners in Health & Human Service Fields
In 2016, CSC celebrated our 75th year of research, planning and action around improving the lives of Oklahomans. Throughout this time, the Community Service Council has continuously brought people together to research, plan, coordinate action, and assess progress to address some of Oklahoma’s most critical social service, health, education and civic challenges. Our focus is on prevention – implementing strategies that invest in individuals and families across the lifespan to better care for themselves, their families, and our community.
Today, CSC remains a trusted planning organization for data, research, policy, collaboration, mobilization and strategy development for community improvement. As a catalyst seeking and driving solutions to meet critical needs, we serve our mission in the following five roles…
