Our History

Capitol Hill Supportive Services Program, Inc. has a proud history of supporting unserved and underserved populations in employment, job readiness training, residential services, and other life skills in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Our program started in 1987, with the provision of skills training to four adults with Developmental Disabilities. In 1993, our program was awarded a Human Care Agreement from the Washington, DC Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities Administration (MRDDA) that provided resources to increase our enrollment. We relocated and offered a range of specialized employment training programs in silk screening, offset press, and embroidery. In 1996 we expanded with another contract award from MRDDA to provide a “Work Activity Program,” and we expanded to include janitorial and housekeeping services. That same year we won an additional Human Care Agreement for “Psycho-Social Services,” and we began providing services to people with intensive behavioral health support needs, assisting them to manage their own paths to success.

CHSSP Inc Background.

In 2007 the MRDDA joined with the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA), both within a new cabinet-level agency: the Department on Disability Services. Following these changes, CHSSP received authorization and launched our Home and Community Based Waiver programs (the “Waiver,” as it is commonly called). Our census increased to above 90 people supported in our day and employment focused services, and we opened a residential program in the historic Capitol Hill neighborhood.
