No child should fall through the gaps

Tragically, there are many children who – by sheer misfortune – miss out on the help they so desperately need as they don’t qualify for existing support services. TLC for Kids focuses significant attention on catching those children who fall through the gaps, including sufferers of accidents, burns, abuse, and rare illnesses. With rapid turnaround and no restrictive criteria, TLC for Kids strives to ensure that no child misses out.
