We believe the spirit in which we work is just as important as our program itself. PTI is committed to helping under-resourced people, including individuals who have experienced trauma, to gain control of their lives. We believe we assist clients best when we honor their experiences, support their strengths, and listen to their voices. Our programs are a direct response to listening to the voices of those we work with who expressed the need for safe and well-paid work. Prioritizing their rights, their voice, their dreams, and their goals allows us to adapt our programs to their unique needs and ensures we are most effective in helping them achieve a hopeful future.
