In 2000, we expanded our programs and facilities to include transitional housing for families at the Transitional Living and Learning Center (TLLC) on Blanco Road. The TLLC is a residential facility for up to 40 homeless families with minor children who show a commitment to gaining self-sufficiency. The individual needs of all family members are supported, promoting the viability of the family as a whole. In Fiscal Year 2011, 298 unduplicated family residents, of which 93 were adults and 205 were children, lived and were served at TLLC.
