CCTT holds a unique status in the community, as a resource of last resort that serves low and moderate income families and individuals. We work with all people and are not restricted to a specific segment of the population or religious background. We work to assist the most vulnerable members of our community. Most families who walk through our doors have already visited a multitude of other agencies and have been unable to find support elsewhere. Our work is guided by two main objectives: to address the needs of the community?s most vulnerable people and to challenge conditions that cause poverty and despair. Remaining focused on our mission of service and advocacy, we mobilize public and private resources, and join with government, business, community groups and individuals to effectively serve the lowest income families in Tompkins and Tioga Counties.
