Welcoming Immigrants and Refugees
CTS Immigrant Host Team
- Founded in 2023, the Immigrant Host Team is comprised of members at CTS helping an immigrant family navigate life in the United States. Whether that means providing assistance for day-to-day expenses, accessing affordable housing, or looking for work or connection in the community, the host team strives to listen and meet the needs of the host family we're serving.
- To support the Immigrant Host Team, you can make a donation to our Immigration Host Fund online through SimplyGiving. If you're a member at CTS interested in getting involved with the Immigrant Host Team, you can contact Marissa.
