The majority of TLC residents are diagnosed with severe depression, manic-depressive illness, or psychosis. In addition to providing 40 beds for temporary shelter purposes, TLC also supports residents through case management, psychiatric care, group and individual counseling, vocational services, and physical therapy. Once residents are ready to move into their permanent homes, BCS strives to supply them with several essential household items so that they can create comfortable homes and get fresh starts. Although TLC is substantially funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, government funds don’t cover the costs of providing the women with these household goods.
