For more than 20 years, the TLC Center/Abortion Alternatives and Women Center has been promoting life and providing support for people in need.
“Many people think our support is just food, clothing, items. We provide so much more things such as mental and spiritual support,” said Angie Peters, the founder of the TLC Center.
For 22 years, the center has been providing services to anyone who is in need of assistance with topics ranging from child care to car maintenance. The center is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
During these times, families can come to receive food, clothing, and participate in the different classes. “The motherhood class has been our most popular one. It’s available for new mothers or caregivers learning how to properly take care of a child,” said Peters.
The center is focused on becoming a space for women with children suffering from domestic abuse, addiction, and even homelessness. “We really want to do whatever we need to do in order to provide a safe environment for these people,” Peters said.
Peter said the organization has recently created a new clothing section for children from ages 2 months to 3 years.
“We serve thousands of people every year so making sure we have the proper necessities to give them is extremely important for us,” said Peters.
Donations and new volunteers are always welcomed. Both essential aspects help keep the organization functioning smoothly.
“The organization is not federally funded, all of our money comes from donations from the community. We will always take any help we can get,” said Peters.
The food program will provide children with meals throughout the summer. They serve around 407 kids a day.
“We’re so thankful for the impact we’ve been able to make on the community. It’s been wonderful for myself and everyone else involved,” said Peters.
