Whether we’re shopping for loved ones, decorating our tree or cooking a holiday meal for family and friends, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the chaos of Christmas. Each year CTEH takes a moment to reflect on the true meaning of the season by giving back to those less fortunate.

With more than 14,000 homeless children in Arkansas, this year the CTEH team chose to contribute to Our House. Located in Little Rock, Arkansas, Our House focuses on empowering homeless and near-homeless families in central Arkansas to succeed in the workforce, school and life. It requires all adults to obtain and maintain a full-time job and provides critical programs such as job training, free childcare and after-school care. Thanks to these comprehensive services and the generous support of the community, Our House has been able to help more than 1,400 people in central Arkansas annually.

CTEH is thankful for the opportunity to contribute to worthy organizations like Our House who continue to make positive impacts on our communities. If you’d like to join us in supporting Our House, please visit ourhouseshelter.org. Merry Christmas from CTEH!
