Client Turned Donor CTI

Kevin was once a struggling teen parent. As a single father, Kevin was able to enroll his little girl in the Community Teamwork (CTI) Head Start Program while he worked on finishing his education. He also took advantage of CTI’s six-week Financial Education Classes and was accepted into the Individual Development Account (IDA) Program which helped him to finance his first home. With hard work and perseverance, Kevin completed his degree, landed a job at a local bank and studied real estate. Now a successful Real Estate Agent, he is paying it forward by donating $5k to the program that gave him his successful start. Thank you Kevin and congratulations!!
