CTL’s work starts by understanding the cycle of poverty.
Did you know that 7,000 children under the age of 6 experience homelessness in Tarrant County? Each year, they make up 52% of low-income 5-year-olds who enter kindergarten unprepared. These
children fall further and further behind, becoming three times more likely to drop out of high school. These children and their families are at the center of the cycle of poverty that we work
Recognizing the limit on living wage jobs and the continuous loop this creates, Center for Transforming Lives embraces a two-generation approach to disrupt the cycle of poverty. Working with
mothers and their children, we provide families with tools to build generational wealth and manage emotional trauma.
