A few years later the women moved to Pepper Street, near downtown Mesa. Yet later, it moved to a different location, still downtown, where it is today. About 60 women live there.
Now, to extend our services to women, we're opening a 50 bed facility in North Phoenix.
This location has been a long time coming. Normally, the way things happen around TLC is that we decide we need a new facility in a certain area. Then we spend a few years chattering and planning.
The main requirement for a facility at TLC is staff. And growing staff takes months – sometimes years.
The primary quality we seek is dedication to recovery. And lately we've been blessed to find women who excel in that area.
We have a core of women who carry the message. Everything else they can learn on the job.
