“CRT wants to ensure that the women we serve have every opportunity to control their own futures, and that they have the skills, resources and support they need to thrive both personally and professionally,” said Tenesha Grant, CRT’s Director of Women’s Services.
In 2018, nearly 60% of the people who made use of CRT’s programs and services are female; and nearly 31% are single parent, female-headed households. For many of them, the services they receive through CRT are the lifeline they need to keep their families afloat.
CRT’s Women’s Empowerment Center welcomes women, regardless of race, ethnicity, income level, or social status, to be mentored and empowered to reach their full potential. The
Center will provide specialized case management, education, and mentoring services to encourage women to establish economic security, stable careers, and a commitment to their own personal and professional success.
CRT executives and members of the Board of Trustees, CRT’s Director of Women’s Services, along with local elected officials, and members of the Women’s Empowerment Center will be on hand that morning to commemorate this special occasion.
Please note: Parking is available in the LAZ parking lot on Market Street (behind CRT’s offices). Please enter via the back of the building.
