Month of March: Coin Drive for Horizon House and Social Work Awareness Month

Looking for ways to honor Social Work Awareness Month? CTW is excited to support Horizon House and their Million Coins Campaign- CHANGE can make real change! Horizon House provides a continuum of services and supports to adults with psychiatric or developmental disabilities, drug and alcohol addictions, and/or homelessness. How will your change make change? Your money will:

      • Help people who are homeless learn how to live successfully in their own residences
      • Help people with disabilities obtain employment and become as self-sufficient and independent as possible
      • Help people get the resources they need to make their lives better

Look for social change containers in the lobbies of Caster and 3815 from March 3rd to March 31st!
