What We Do

For nearly 50 years, CCT has strengthened the community by helping the formerly incarcerated and people with criminal records and their families rebuild pathways to living healthy and productive lives.

Our work provides employment and transition services; supports alternatives to incarceration; and restores and strengthens family bonds through 3 programs: LifeWorks!, Families Doing Time, and the Center for Women.

LifeWorks! prepares individuals to find, grow, and retain employment that strengthens pathways to economic mobility.

Families Doing Time serves children with an incarcerated parent or family member and their adult caregivers through social emotional wellness curriculum and enrichment programs designed to bolster family reunification.

The Center for Women is a residential work release facility created to help currently incarcerated women nearing the end of their state prison sentence successfully transition from prison to their family and the community.

How YOU Can Help:

- Make a donation of $25, $50, $100 or more to CCT online or send a check to CCT ❘ PO Box 33533 ❘ Charlotte, NC 28233

- Send gift cards to our PO Box from local restaurants, grocery stores (like Walmart, Food Lion, Harris Teeter, etc.).
