TLC has been providing services to people living in and around Newport for over 30 years. Now, people living in and around Newport will be able to meet in person with TLC staff at Millie's Place and Epiphany Episcopal Church.
It has long been a goal of TLC to have a satellite office in Newport. When Dan Wargo, the TLC Recovery Program Manager, learned that Millie's place was in jeopardy of closing, he reached out and asked about partnering to keep this important space open for people in recovery and to provide additional recovery services to the Newport community. TLC now has an office space at Millie's Place and is meeting with people by appointment Monday through Friday.
At the same time, TLC's Family Support Program Director, Diane Edwards, realized that 25% of the families participating in TLC programs lived in the Newport area. She knew we could do a better job connecting with and supporting these families if our office was a little closer to home. Diane met with Epiphany Episcopal Church and they agree to provide space for TLC to meet with families.
"We know that the people and families we partner with in Newport have busy lives. We want to be sure that location and transportation are not barriers for them to get the support needed to reach their goals. We are grateful to the Newport community for welcoming us into these two spaces and look forward to serving families and people in recovery at Millie's Place and Epiphany Episcopal Church."
