TLC is a transitional living center which offers a structured family-like environment to Manchester school children who are victims of abuse, neglect or family disruption beyond their control who can still succeed in school, work and community.
At TLC Foundation Inc, our mission is to provide a safe, nurturing home environment to adolescents who cannot stay at home due to family disruption, parent-child conflict or the lack of a suitable home environment.
TLC House is centrally located:
17 North St., Manchester, CT.
Convenient to Robertson Elementary School, the Town of Manchester Recreation Department, recreational fields, pool and programs, the Board of Education, shopping and bus transportation stops.
TLC has been in operation since April, 1987. Since that time services have been provided to a substantial number of children and their families. Some residents return to their own families, some are discharged to independent living and others remain at TLC through high school and the first couple of years of college and are given assistance with college and/ or work plans. TLC was the 1990 Connecticut Youth Service Association Program of the year. TLC is the quiet gem and success story that could only have happened because of the support of Town of Manchester and the belief of its Board of Education.
TLC has had a wonderful year. Because of the support of The Manchester Board of Education and The Town of Manchester we have been able to help twelve children and their families this year. Two have graduated from high school, two are living independently on their own, and three have been transitioned successfully back home.
Regardless of how long a child stays at TLC, we provide a safe home while allowing them to continue with their education and thrive in the community.
