As fall comes to an end and the holiday season approaches, we are grateful to look back at a year that brought great excitement as ACH reached an incredible milestone and turned 100! Our centennial celebrations during the year brought together our alumni, supporters and staff to reflect on our past, share memories, and look forward to our future.

Thank you for sharing in the centennial festivities and helping us celebrate 100 years of service to our community.

Centennial Alumni Reunion

On October 3, ACH held its bi-annual alumni reunion on the Wichita Street Campus. It was a beautiful day full of fun, family-friendly activities. Alumni were able to share memories of their time at ACH and reconnect with old friends.

Century of Caring Celebration

October 4 was a day of celebration as ACH hosted an activity-filled event in Sundance Square to celebrate 100 years of protecting children and preserving families. For ACH, it was a way to thank the Fort Worth community for 100 years of support.

Hoot ‘n Holler

ACH hosted its 100th year grand celebration at Bass Performance Hall on November 4. The event was an incredible success, raising $260,000 to provide a safe and loving home for more than 700 children and families annually in seven ACH residential programs.

ACH began over 100 years ago because women from different churches around Fort Worth came together to give their time and resources to realize their vision of helping women and children have a safe place to live. Thanks to countless more volunteers and donors through the years, ACH has been able to not only realize our founders’ vision, but to continue to grow and adapt to meet the changing needs of our community.

Since 1915, ACH has been committed to protecting children and preserving families – and thousands of children and families have found help through our programs. Our success has been possible only because so many people have stepped forward to help – in so many different ways.

We are so very thankful to those who have joined with us over the last ten decades to provide financial support, advocate on behalf of those in need, and volunteer their valuable time to help children and families in need. At the heart of what we do are the children and families we serve. We look forward to continuing to serve our community for the next 100 years.
