Wecome to CSR St Paul
We're asking questions, and creating comprehensive lists to help people navigate Community, Services, & Resources.
CSR St Paul is the online presence and the Minnesota demographic for the City of St Paul, and eastern metropolitan Twin Cities, MN. Or, the counties of Anoka, Ramsey, Dakota and Washington.
We are here to prioritize the largest community demographic that is most in need, and most traumatized, abused and hurt, no matter what the race or cultural identity! This service and these resource listings are for everyone, with priority given to those most in need.
All this work started with one person in this community doing something because he was in the best position to do so. This one person lived through the trauma of being born into a domestic violence family, and born and raised in an alcoholic addict family system. Because of what happened to this person inside the family system, he was sexually assaulted at the age of 13 years old while participation in the Boy Scouts of America.
This person was given every reason to medicate himself. This person was given every reason to get drunk, get high, become an addict and be out of control. The family legacy handed down to this person was generations of men becoming and living as drunks and domestic abusers. Even though this person was given every reason to become a junkie and be out of control at a young age, he did not. He did not get into drinking, doing drugs, smoking anything, or even gambling. He initially used sports to survive the first years of living with this trauma and betrayal. Ten years later this person left college in 1983 to work on his process of recovery, working with peers and professionals to heal and live outside the system of addiction.
This work is here to challenge, correct, and confront our culture of failure. This work exists for some of us to lead by example, facilitating help and support for anyone that need and seek to change the direction of their lives toward the truth, relief and healing, solutions and genuine success! This work is here to help people navigate Community, Services and Resources by asking tough questions regarding what are we actually doing in this community!
Everyone is welcome to join this idea of community teamwork that is based in practicing communication, relationship and social skills. We are here to first emphasize the requirement of every person to live from this inside out, instead of referencing out there, out there, out there first.
