TLC House Indiana (TLC) was established by caring community members to lend a helping hand as an emergency shelter, offering support for women and children in Steuben County escaping domestic violence. The organization is committed to offering a safe place for women fleeing domestic abuse to experience how life will be when they are on their own, within a structured environment that offers support when they face challenges. Mada Waldrop, Executive Director of TLC, shared, “To get people access to the most important services, we have to work as a community.”

SCCF has 10 community funds, which support local grant projects in Angola, Ashley-Hudson, Clear Lake, Fremont, Hamilton, Helmer, Metz, Orland, Pleasant Lake, and Salem Center.
