Welcome Amy!

Please help Project TLC welcome Amy Patterson as our new intern! Amy is a graduate student in Cultural Studies at the University of Washington and mother of a beautiful young girl with Down Syndrome. She shares our passion and love for individuals with disabilities. She is a fantastic asset to our team!

Project TLC was never ever intended to be just another organization that ships diapers and formula to orphanages. There is a need for that, but we know firsthand that the children those things and more

Project TLC is pleased to have been able to distribute donations of diapers, hygenic supplies, cleaning supplies, school supplies and more. We are overjoyed that we were able to replace some drafty windows and help the children stay warmer this winter. You helped us to accomplish these things! We hope to continue! We thank you heartily!

But now, how do we truly improve the lives of these children? We would like to turn our attention to the intangible ways of making a difference. Things like eye contact, tender words, loving touch, stable relationships. Ask a parent of a post-institutionalized child what a difference those things could have made in the life child. It's huge.

Amy is already hard at work with us! We are building frameworks for new programs, researching existing ones, making connections and strategic partnerships. Although things seem quiet on the surface, we are paddling furiously under the water. 

There is much work to do, much information to wade through, and many children who are presently suffering. Won't you please pray that God would continue to bless our efforts and keep connecting us with the right people to get this job done?
