TLC was founded in 1975 with the mission to provide essential support to underserved youth in the foster care system. As the needs of the community have grown and shifted, TLC has expanded our programs and resources to meet the real-time demands of foster care, probation, and other underserved youth within and beyond Sonoma County.TLC Child and Family Services provides educational, mental health, and housing support to foster care, probation, transition age, and other at-risk youth through five programs, including foster care and adoption, a non-public high school, trauma informed mental health services, residential treatment, and transition age housing and mobile case management. For 47 years, TLC has been bolstering vulnerable youth in building independence and self resilience as they transition into adulthood. More than 250 young people receive specialized care through TLC’s programs everyday.
