CWTC Consumers Giving Back
Even though CWTC receives support from the community, we also believe in giving back. Our consumers volunteer at over ten sites in the community. As they volunteer, they are also learning life skills such as safety, good work practices and communication, just to name a few. CWTC consumers enjoy being a part of their community.
