Celebrating 10 Years!
This month marks the 10th year CTL’s Carol Klocek has served as the agency’s Chief Executive Officer, leading the crusade to help women and children escape poverty and homelessness.
In the 10 years under Carol’s leadership, the social service agency has expanded to help thousands more impoverished women and children (approximately 3,000 annually), and the operating budget has grown to more than $9 million with nearly 100 full-time employees.
In celebration, we asked Carol to some milestone moments of the last decade:
That is a signification list of accomplishments! Of course, we would be remiss after that peek back not to chat with her about CTL’s future:
“My vision is to build an organization that is truly effective at breaking the cycle of poverty for families — and to do this on a scale that has community impact,” Carol said.
“Because single mothers with young children living in poverty and homelessness have significant, individual and complex needs, CTL will be able to meet those needs in a way that is realistic, holistic and compassionate, and that helps them develop over time and become fully self-sufficient.
By 2023, I intend for us to be working with 10,000 women and children each year, and with one-third lifting themselves above the poverty line.”
Here’s to the next 10 years!

Witnessing the before and after with a mother and child. The complete transformation, particularly when the family achieves far more than most thought possible.
