Sonoma County organizations take up challenge to confront youth homelessness
2020 – Heart-filled Accomplishments
Welcome to TLC Child & Family Services
Based in beautiful Sonoma County, TLC Child and Family Services offers a continuum of evidence based treatment and relationship-focused care to youth and families.
Foster Care & Adoption
TLC is a licensed foster family and adoption agency serving individuals and families wishing to provide loving homes to children from infancy up to 21 years of age.
Transitional Housing Programs for Young Adults
TLC has three housing programs that give young people, ages 16-24, the opportunity to learn critical life skills and receive comprehensive mobile case management and support from a team of trauma informed professional staff while living independently in Sonoma County.
TLC partners with landlords and homeowners to provide a scattered site model offering safe residences, such as studios, apartments, room rentals and site homes throughout Sonoma County.
Under the care of TLC Child and Family Services (TLC), a private non-profit agency, Journey Academy is dedicated to providing education and trauma-informed services to high school aged youth experiencing emotional and academic challenges. We provide a safe, therapeutic environment specializing in a relationship-based approach that embraces each individual’s unique strengths.
At Journey Academy, we work with youth who are bright and capable, but struggling to find their place in the world. These youth are spiraling inward and downward.
Treatment is guided by evidenced based and trauma-informed practices to help youth with the following:
- Identity Development and LGBTQI+ Topics
- Low Self-Esteem
- Academics and School Refusal
- Family and Peer Relationships.
Through a family-systems and relationship-based approach we help families come together in healthy, new ways.
Students are given support to thrive academically, enhance their social and emotional well-being, gain independent living skills and step into their true potential.
