Mentoring Towards Independence
The CCSI Mentoring Towards Independence (MTI) program is designed to work with families who are ready to INVEST in themselves and their families. CCSI believes in the value of education and supportive relationships to empower individuals to direct their own paths to personal and financial wellbeing, and to create legacies of self-sufficiency for their families.
