The kiddos and I had the privilege of being invited to meet Buzz and Woody at TLC here in Olathe. TLC is an emergency shelter for abused and neglected children from infancy through age 18. The mission of TLC is to provide opportunities that encourage positive growth and change for children, youth and families while ensuring a safe environment. TLC strives for the preservation and healing of families by providing services, to the extent allowed by our resources, that compliment existing community services while maintaining responsiveness to changing community needs.
Myself along with a few other parents/bloggers were invited to TLC not only to meet Buzz and Woody but to learn about Play Therapy. A therapy I really didn't know alot about but that I plan to learn more about. The kiddos were also able to make their very own Mr. Potato Heads while we were there!!!
It was a very fun day for us all...I would recommend if you are looking for a community service project, volunteer hours, etc that you keep TLC in mind...a wonderful program that really does make a difference!!
