Love Lives Here
It has been quite the year! Life at TLC continues to pivot, shift and settle into new ways of being as we continue supporting the babies and vulnerable community. However the heart of what we do remains the same in serving those who need our helping hand.
We are so excited to let you know that we recently had an updated promo video done which you can watch here. It does a good job of outlining where we have come from, what we are doing currently and providing the first glimpse of the exciting future we see for ourselves in the future.
Some of the more immediate community news that we can share with you is that in the past few months we have had to say many goodbyes to so many of our little family members as we held their hand in transitioning into their new lives and new family. As we have said our bitter-sweet goodbyes this has allowed us to welcome in handful of new, precious bundles needing a warm loving home to help them thrive in their formative days, months and perhaps even years. We are ever cognisant of the amazing gift you provide in being the hands that tenderly hold these little souls as they thrive and grow.
Speaking of growing, we have also had the blessing over the past half a year to have a dozen raised garden beds donated followed by a greenhouse to contain our little vegetable patch. This has been a wonderful, and surprisingly therapeutic addiction to our growing little village and is being enjoyed by many of our TLC family from the children, to the mothers and the staff. We are consistently looking for ways in which to steward our little gifts more diligently and sustainably and this has been such a tangible way of seeing this being realized by our whole team.
Some of our young adult beneficiaries have also been achieving some outstanding milestone achievements. In the past month 2 of our high-school beneficiaries achieved outstanding results in their recent social studies exams and another got her learner’s license.
As we build on our heritage to create a legacy, here are 4 Ways We Make an Impact:
We honour everyone’s story: meaningful listening is a foundation of lasting community change.
We build a feeling of belonging: connection with commitment fosters long-term emotional security.
We share knowledge: consistent layering of insight, sharing learning and reflecting on experiences equip people to make better choices.
We ‘hand over the mic’: each member of the community has a role intrinsic to its success, including ambassadors of its healthy modelling.
Does this resonate with you? As we draw ever closer to an authentic, expanded mission to foster true community belonging, I encourage you to reach out to pippa with ideas, feedback and questions (email@example.com). This is a village, after all!
Again we want to sincerely thank you for being part of all the amazing things happening in our home. We hope to send you another update sooner rather than later to continue keeping you in the loop with all the exciting developments that are on the go in our thriving little village.
