Letter from the Co-Founders:
"2021"
December marks 5 years since Children's Transplant Initiative's inception. What began as a "Leap of Faith" has turned into a journey that continues to humble us to our knees. What began as a "dream" has turned into reality. And what began as a "vision" has turned into a purpose. CTI would not be where they are today without each and every one of you reading this, along with countless others. Through your love, support, and prayer, we have all been able to make a difference. Thank you for joining us on this incredible journey, we can't wait to see what the next 5 years will bring.

Stay healthy, stay safe and stay blessed,

Housing Update
CTI is happy to announce we opened our 6th apartment in November of this year! We are looking to open our 7th in the first quarter of 2022 - this one will be for when families have to come back to Houston for post-transplant related treatments and need a place to stay for a short period. It will also be used as a satellite office for CTI when we have to be in the medical center.

We are also very excited to announce that CTI has partnered with Transplants for Children in San Antonio to establish a pediatric transplant hospitality housing program for the San Antonio area!

We want to give a sincere thank you to our monthly giving partners. Our CTI families with critically ill children who are in the middle of life saving transplant journeys can't pause or cancel doctor visits or treatments. Your continuous support allows us to provide for these families in need.  If you would like to commit to helping us serve children and their families, please click the link below and sign up to be a monthly giving partner or make a one time donation.
CTI Family Updates
In the second half of 2021 we got to share in the joy of these 4 precious children getting their second chance at life because of an organ donor and their family. This is always such a blessing for the CTI team to be a part of this life changing and life saving journey these families find themselves on. This is 4 out of our 6 families who are in our hospitality apartments for their 3-4 month post care. We also have 2 other guest families who are waiting on their special call. Thank you to all of you who support our mission to come alongside these families by offering a home away from home and easing some of the burdens they carry.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU
While the support of so many has kept CTI going for the past 5 years, we would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to Cory and Catherine Kruse, along with the Kruse Classic Board, and to Steve & Shelly Brewer of Express Corporate Housing - without your huge hearts, CTI would not be where we are today.
