Santaccountants logo

For over 30 years, Fort Worth CPAs have been the spirit of Christmas for many Fort Worth families.  In 2020, Santaccountants will benefit children in the daycare program at the Center for Transforming Lives and the students in Como at HOPE Farm.  Some of these kids are homeless, some live below the poverty line, and some have socio-economic challenges.  Santaccountants bring a set of clothes and a toy, making sure all experience the joy of the season.  More about our program recipients below.

CTL testimonial

Center for Transforming Lives

For 110 years, the organization now known as the Center for Transforming Lives (CTL) has provided anti-poverty programs for women and children in Tarrant County. It was founded in 1907 as the first YWCA™ in Texas serving as a boarding house for poor women, expanded to include child care for working mothers in the 1930s, and in 2015 changed its name from the YWCA Fort Worth & Tarrant County to the Center for Transforming Lives to more clearly articulate its mission.


‚ÄčToday, the Center for Transforming Lives helps homeless and impoverished women, children, and families move from poverty to independence through: 

  • Homeless services – an emergency shelter for women and housing assistance for families.
  • Early Childhood Development – providing free or subsidized early childhood education to impoverished and homeless families.
  • Financial Empowerment Services – individual financial coaching and other programs to promote financial self-sufficiency.


HOPE Farm’s programs focus on the pressing issues youth face today. The goal is two-fold: to offer positive alternatives to delinquent and gang-related activity and to plant seeds for enriched and empowered lives. HOPE Farm is accomplishing this by providing positive role models in a structured holistic program. Since 1989, HOPE Farm has served over 250 at-risk boys and moms in Fort Worth, breaking the cycle of fatherless families.
