CTC was founded in 1997 by five faith communities:

Chicago Temple (United Methodist)
Fourth Presbyterian Church of Chicago
Holy Name Cathedral (Roman Catholic)
Old Saint Patrick's Church (Roman Catholic)
Saint Chrysostom Church (Episcopal)

Their purpose was to provide support to underemployed and unemployed professionals and recent college graduates who otherwise could not afford comprehensive job placement services. While CTC receives support from faith communities, it is not a faith-based organization.

Today, CTC represents an alignment of academic institutions, faith communities, and businesses concerned with supporting people in their search for meaningful employment and sustainable success.
