Partnering with Community Renewal Team

CRT staff helps people improve job skills, maintain independence, stabilize living situations, and achieve educational goals.

“After 30 years, I still love to volunteer with CRT because the children, their families and the staff are the most wonderful human beings in the world. Currently, I’m on the Health Board with people who absolutely care and are totally accountable. They are monitoring and improving the well being of CRT’s preschool children.”
