Poverty’s many issues are complex, interconnected, and overlapping. Because of that reality, the Claretian Initiative’s programs are designed to make the largest community impact by addressing multiple issues with each of our programs. How can a tutoring youth program impact violence prevention and health? How can a scholarship fund teach leadership development and job/life skills? Browse through our growing list of programs below and find out how tCI’s programs build sustained community development by addressing multiple issues simultaneously.
