Volunteers Are Busy
Now look at us!! Our volunteer staff has increased severalfold both in number and in skill level. We are doing the best job ever providing services, meeting needs and changing lives. We have a team of dedicated, professional volunteers who take their responsibilities seriously. We are so grateful for this team. Meet a few of our amazing volunteers:
Vilmarie is willing to help out wherever she is needed. She is working in leadership, as hands-on staff, and maintenance.
Debby is our new “Boutique Manager”. Our residents earn TLC dollars for program participation. They can use those dollars to purchase hygiene items, diapers, wipes etc.
Paul Heuer created a doll house. It is one of over 116 creations he has built since
1979 and took Paul about 2 months to build.
Judy lead a cooking class and created a very special memory. It was a first time ever for some moms and kids to cut out and bake cookies, make the frosting, and decorate. Great fun and enjoyed by all. This experience helped build stronger families bonds and lifetime memories.
Fresh produce is always appreciated. Regina brought apples and more to TLC. Thanks, County Line Produce, for your generosity.
Sometimes a volunteer finds time to just sit and play with the darlings living at TLC. What could be more important than showing love?
We love all our volunteers for caring so much. Together we are making a difference in the lives of young moms and their babies in Hernando County.
Matthew 25:35-40 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these, you did it to me
If you can drive, you can help. Our little ones need rides to daycare and back five days a week. One hour/week of your time would help us. You would come to our facility in Brooksville at 8 a.m, take our van and drive to daycare, then return to TLC and pick up your own car. Alternatively, sign up for the afternoon pick-up around 5.
If you have more time to offer, we will be overjoyed. Drivers need to be over 25 with a good driving record.
Can you read to the toddlers one evening a week? They will love you.

Residents Are Busy
As our program matures, we are better able to direct our residents to services that will help them reach their goals. This is the most motivated group of residents we have ever had
With a full house that currently includes 9 little ones, constant cleaning is a necessity. The rooms are not always as neat and tidy as they are in these pictures, but we try.
The newest member of the TLC family has arrived. She was the 9th baby to be born
while mom was living at TLC. She is absolutely precious. We held a baby shower for mom. Residents past and present and volunteer staff enjoyed chocolate-covered strawberries and some fabulous chicken dip. Decorations, gifts, and eight kids made for a fun time. The oldest child in attendance was three, which means there were several unauthorized tastes of frosting!
TLC provides basics, but life is so much more. A very special little boy who lives at TLC turned 4, making it a day to celebrate & remember.
