Community Support Program

Check out our CSP Calendar and read our June Newsletter here!

Welcome to Avivo’s Community Support Program (CSP)! Membership is free and open to adults residing in Hennepin County who live with a severe and persistent mental illness. We offer a place to belong, build friendships, connect with others – while experiencing engaging activities and finding meaningful life resources! Avivo CSP programming is offered in-person and virtually.

Structured and welcoming wellness activities are offered in-person at two gathering place locations in Minneapolis. Staff offer ArtWorks, Avivo’s widely known, inclusive arts programming founded on the principles of arts access, recovery, and social justice. Avivo’s gathering places also offer wellness activities that include physical activity, games, fellowship, staff support to connect to community resources, and more.
