The theme for Women’s History Month is, “Visionary Women: Champions of Peace & Nonviolence,” which truly defines KidsTLC’s founders, JCYM Johnson County Young Matrons!
Rather than build a clubhouse to host luncheons and bridal showers, this incredible group of strong, caring women raised funds to fill an unmet need in our community. They heard and answered the desperate cry for temporary housing for neglected and abandoned children waiting to be placed in foster care. KidsTLC (known then as T.L.C.: Temporary Lodging for Children) received its 501c3 nonprofit designation on this day in 1971 and opened the doors of the first home in 1972.
While KidsTLC has grown significantly over the years and now focuses on mental/behavioral health, autism and family support services, we remain committed to fulfilling the mission of these visionary women by transforming lives in our community!
So, during Women’s History Month, on the anniversary of our nonprofit status, KidsTLC recognizes and thanks JCYM for their selfless care and endless support!
