Raphael House is a residential program for homeless families. The gift of CTN is an integral component of our mission to help families achieve economic self-sufficiency. It’s critically important in today’s economy for all individuals to have access to reliable resources that will afford them the opportunity to acquire skills or upgrade existing skills. Such opportunities have an additional benefit for individuals – along with developing and improving their hard skills, they are able to develop and improve their soft skills. Our partnership with CTN is a gift that keeps on giving. From the bottom of my heart, thank you, CTN.

Working with CTN we have been able to provide more classes for our guests due to their ability to find and train highly skilled volunteers. Also, through CTN’s extensive network we have been able to brainstorm with other service providers and develop stronger service plans.
