Your Donation At Work

CTL believes in the power of education, the potential of children and the possibility of transformation. We know from experience that when a woman thrives, so do her children and her community. Accordingly, we are building a community where all women and children live in safety, have the education needed to earn a living wage, and can create the opportunities to build a secure financial future. Our transformative services are trauma-informed, holistic, integrated and sustainable.

OUR VISION

Center for Transforming Lives envisions serving more than 10,000 women and children per year, building flourishing communities where cycles of emotional and financial well-being, security, and prosperity replace cycles of generational poverty.

CTL is leading innovative practices — embracing radical empathy and working as an agent of change by addressing inequities and disrupting generational cycles of poverty through our comprehensive network.
