The Community Transition School Needs Our Help


The Community Transitional School is trying desperately to collect enough school supplies for its community as the school year is about to begin.  The Community Transitional School serves “the hidden homeless,” the students who live with their homeless and transient families through Multnomah County.  The school is always striving to achieve its mission: To provide at-risk children with a stable educational environment that promotes their academic and personal growth.
