Burlington Transitional Living Center
Our mission is to provide families and individuals with temporary shelter and basic necessities while assisting them in gaining skills to become self-sufficient, employed, and independent.
The problem of homelessness is complex. It requires a collaborative effort that begins with meeting immediate needs but extends much further to help people achieve independence and to alleviate the root causes of poverty.
Whether you are compelled by the national movement to end homelessness or you just believe that no one in your community should go without a safe, stable place to call home you have the opportunity to make a difference. Thanks to the work being done at Transitional Living Center (TLC) we are able to make a difference in the lives of the families we serve by providing them with the services they need to be successful.
