TLC Child and Family Services is a non-proﬁt organization that annually serves over 500 children, young adults and families in Northern California. TLC provides comprehensive quality foster care and adoption services, emergency shelter, residentially-based services, special education services, transitional housing and counseling.

There are nearly 70,000 children in California’s foster care system who will never return to their original families. These children are waiting for the one thing they need the most: a permanent, loving family. Statistics show that children without homes will often not complete high school. Children without love will be under-employed or will have diﬃculty keeping a job. And without a stable adult in their lives, there is a 50-50 chance that they will be homeless or incarcerated within two years of leaving foster care at the age of 18.
