May Membership Meeting 2022
Carol Klocek, CEO of Center for Transforming Lives
At our May Membership meeting, we welcomed Carol Klocek, CEO of Center for Transforming Lives. (CTL) The center works with women and children to disrupt the cycle of poverty. One surprising statistic was that the first year of life is the most common age to be homeless in the U.S., followed by ages two to five. CTL provides comprehensive homeless services, early childhood education and economic mobility services, child care, family housing and trauma intervention services. They offer one on one financial coaching and asset building, plus other economic mobility interventions. Post pandemic, CTL has distributed $1 1/2 million in rental assistance.
