About Caregivers Support Services

Caregiver Support Services (CSS) is a non-profit organization with a 501(c) (3) tax exempt status. CSS was founded in 1998 by Terrence and Eboni Green, a husband and wife team, after the couple recognized that most individuals who provide care for a loved one or client do not know where to start when it comes to gathering and coordinating resources and services. Now in its 23rd year CSS has transformed a predominately grassroots regional supporter of caregivers into a nationally known non-profit with an entrepreneurial spirit. Our expertise is leveraging partnerships with national and international organizations to build engaging and innovative solutions for caregivers.
