TLC Program

The Transitional Living Center offers homeless women and their children a safe and nurturing environment to rebuild a stable, productive lifestyle. They are counseled in parenting, anger management, and domestic violence. The TLC strives to help women discover their passions and talents and find ways to fulfill their dreams.
With extensive career counseling, the women find new, satisfying jobs; learn to budget, and are able to save 80 % of their income each month. The families may stay at TLC for up to one year and 85% of TLC residents move into independent housing after that time. It’s not easy. The moms at TLC have tremendous courage. It is not easy to start all over. The Salvation Army loves and supports these moms and their children.
Nearly 1/4 of San Diego’s homeless are mothers with children. Many have lost jobs or fled domestic abuse. Being homeless is a traumatic experience for anyone; just imagine what it is like for a child. The TLC program has been in operation since 1998 and continues to serve women and children in San Diego County.




THE HAVEN
The Haven Program is a long term residential treatment group home for pregnant and parenting teens and their babies. Here young women learn how to parent their infants while growing in personal, emotional, and spiritual strength. They learn structure and they thrive with their babies in this encouraging environment. Program activities and group sessions are conducted in a baby friendly atmosphere, where families, visitors, and guests are welcome. The Haven has two units with a total of 20 beds for pregnant and/or parenting teens and their children. The young women at the Haven are able to stay until they reach the age of 18, most of them have had a very distressing childhood and now for the first time they are able to thrive in a safe and comfortable environment. This Salvation Army program has been in operation since the 1930’s and continues to serve teenagers and their babies within the San Diego community.
