Let's build the better world together

CITCA strives to empower individuals and communities to build resilience and lead fulfilling lives. By fostering a culture of support and understanding, CITCA plays a vital role in breaking down barriers and reducing stigmas surrounding mental health, ultimately creating a more inclusive and compassionate society for all.

OUR VALUES

Equity

We're more than just a charity. We aim to offer the best and fair resources for people in our communities who have been affected but may not know about or have access to them.

Advocacy

We want to bring people together and help them talk about important issues. We believe this can lead to more people being involved in making a difference in their community.

Stewardship

We engage youth and young adults to take action through community partnership and events, targeting recidivism and education gaps.

Empowerment

Our goal is to inspire and cause positive change in people's lives. We want to provide reliable evidence that can help create healthier mental relationships.

What People Say About
Our Company

Ci'Nya Johnson

Senior, and Program Manager

I am grateful for the transformative experience I have gained with ECSEL. The program equip me with essential cognitive skills for navigating the social world, fostering my growth into a more socially aware individual. Beyond the skills acquired, ECSEL offered a sense of comfort and belonging that transcended the typical counselor-mentee relationship. Instead, I found a supportive family within the program, forming lasting bonds that endure even after completion. ECSEL not only helped me understand myself better but also enable me to empathize and connect with others on a deeper level.
