A message from Evergreen Living Innovations


Hello Ladies!


I hope you all had a truly wonderful holiday! You made Christmas so special for each and every one of our residents and their families. It’s an honor and a privilege to work with you every year and then be able to watch the smiles and joy fill the room as gifts are delivered and opened! There will never be enough words to express my appreciation, however 2 of our more tech-savvy residents wanted me to forward on their notes of thanks😊

Brittany Blackard, LMSW  |  Director of Life Enhancement

Evergreen Community of Johnson County

To Young Matrons;


Thank you for your generous gifts.  I was totally surprised by the upgraded pam flute and will love playing it.  The mouthpiece makes it easier and it is two octaves and I know others will appreciate the earphone…  Music is important in my life. My arthritic fingers have eliminated my single native flute. I cam still play my double native flute but this pam flute only uses my mouth which still works…for better or worse.


The clothes are great and the Santa is soft and cuddly but the pan flue upgrade is an outstanding surprise. Thank you, -


Dear Santa, 

 Thank you, for the new shoes, they're just what I wanted, and the beautiful dress shirt, and the gold toe socks!

They are of great quality. It's good to have nice things to wear! Thank you so much,  and 


Merry Christmas, 


          and a Happy Happy New Year!



From a thankful, Evergreen resident

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!
