The mission of TLC Children’s Services is to provide supportive services to abused and neglected children and their families, to improve outcomes for children, and to support children in having safe, permanent forever families.
Our TLC CASA Program provides community-based advocacy that promotes safety and permanency for children who are victims of abuse and neglect. Trained and supervised volunteers, in cases assigned by the juvenile court judge, center the focus of the case upon the child, giving the child a voice in the proceedings.
Our Supervised Visitation Center program provides neutral, child-friendly facilities where children who are in out of home living situations due to abuse and severe neglect can spend quality time with their birth families. Children are able to maintain their connections with siblings, parents, and relatives who are important to them and parents are supported in improving their parenting skill sets and are encouraged to work on reunification case plan goals.
The program further advocates resources for children and families involved in dependency proceedings and promotes community awareness of the problems and solutions to child abuse and neglect.
