During the RCRI Conference in Orlando, CARITAS conducted a workshop focusing on the Top Five Challenges & Solutions for managing the transportation needs of Religious Communities. A panel of guest speakers presented Best Practices and attendees had the opportunity to ask questions and decide which of the Best Practices should be implemented back home in their own communities.
